CTTU asks members to vote for TNA, anti-war party in South

[TamilNet, Sunday, 28 March 2004, 19:12 GMT]
The General Secretary of Ceylon Tamil Teachers' Union (CTTU), Mr.T.Mahasivam, Sunday addressing an election seminar held for CTTU Trincomalee zonal branch teachers Sunday told its members to cast one of their preferential votes to the lead candidate of the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) in every district in the northeast province in the forthcoming general election.

He also requested CTTU members to use the other two preferential votes for candidates of their choice among the remaining candidates who demonstrate potential to advance Tamil struggle.

It further appealed to its members serving in the other seven provinces to cast their votes to a party that is against war and also to cast their preferential votes to Tamil candidates contesting in such party and who could be considered as allies of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).

Mr.Mahasivam further said Tamils in the northeast should vote for the TNA to increase its parliamentary seats in the forthcoming general election. No major political party in the south would obtain absolute majority in the new parliament to form a government.

TNA could play a vital role in deciding which Southern majoritarian parties will form the government if the Tamils enable the TNA to win at least 21 parliamentary seats, Mr.Mahasivam told his members.
