We will not become partners in Government until an acceptable political solution is reached Said the Leader of the Opposition and Leader of the TNA, Era Sampanthan.
An election propaganda meeting of the TNA in support of its candidates was held at Paranthan yesterday. Participating in this meeting he said as above. Elaborating further he said, z’ we are accepting that we are supporting the Government. The political solution should be one that will respect the sovereignty of the Tamil People. It should respect their Right of self determination. We should be able to exercise authority over our social and cultural matters.
Forthcoming LG Elections are important in many ways. The New Constitution that is being formulated, several international resolutions, Pressures, policies of the present Government, International community’s increased concern etc. had made this election an important one. The people should understand that, it is not an ordinary election. If the Tamil people give overwhelming support and make the TNA win, it will demonstrate that the Tamil people are clear and they are democratically firm, he said.
