Election results, major political victory for freedom struggle- LTTE

[TamilNet, Monday, 05 April 2004, 00:17 GMT]
The Tamil people have delivered a clear message that the "concept of the Tamil Homeland, Tamil Nationalism and the right for Tamil self rule should be accepted as the basic aspirations of the Tamil people and that the Tamil national problem should be politically resolved on that basis, failing which the Tamil people will fight to establish the Tamil sovereignty in their homeland on the principle of self determination," said the Political division of Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) in an official communique released in the peace secretariat website.

The communique said that by giving Tamil National Alliance (TNA) a historic victory, the Tamil people have performed their historical duty and have sent a clear message to the "Sinhala Nation and the International community at large."

The communique added that this is the first time after the 1977 elections that the "Tamil people have expressed their aspirations more resolutely and unambiguously...."

The communique appealed to the Tamil people to continue to support the TNA and described the TNA as "the political entity that is assigned the task of being supportive of the Liberation Tigers and the Leadership, relentlessly fighting for the security and freedom of the Tamil people."

During the 1977 elections the TULF stood on a platform approved overwhelmingly by the Tamil people during the landmark Vaddukoddai resolution under the chairmanship of S.J.V.Chelvanayakam which called upon all Tamils to work towards the goal of a separate state of Tamil Eelam.
