It was decided early today in the Leadership Committee meeting of TELO that, the party will not contest the LG Elections along with TNA. As the ITAK is in a recalcitrant stance, we are unable to contest the LG Election with that party, said trhe Secretary General of TELO, N.Srikantha early this morning.
The meeting of the TNA on the distribution of candidacy for the LG Elections was held yesterday. Confusion reigned in this meeting and the agreements reached in an earlier meeting were also abandoned in this meeting. In the confusion the representatives of TELO walked out of the Meeting, even before it was concluded.
The Leadership Committee meeting of TELO was held at Vavuniya from 10 p.m. 16 members participated in this meeting which extended up to 1.30 a.m. today.
We have taken a decision not to contest LG Election along withITAK.We will announce the decision today evening from Jaffna. We will also not participate in the TNA meeting on distribution of Candidacy, to be held today, said Sri Kantha.
