Northern Province Chief Minister C.V.Wigneswaran has observed that Tamil people have taken a very good decision in the election.
In a message he said:
“Today we have selected a new president for the country. Maithiriplaa Srisena is a leader who has been selected by both minorities and majority of this country. I strongly believe democracy would be safeguarded under his leadership. I also believe that foundation would be laid to find a political solution to the Tamil problems that has not been solved for more than 60 years. He has a great duty to resolve the problems of the Muslim people who have been victims of religious extremism. He has to solve the problems faced by the upcountry people who have not had decent living conditions for decades.”
