Leader of the Up-Country People’s Front (UPF) and Member of Parliament P. Chandrasekaran met with LTTE's Head of Political Wing, S. P. Thamilselvan, Friday at Kilinochchi for discussions on the current political situation as Sri Lanka moves closer to electing the next President of Sri Lanka.

UPF which is represented by Mr.P.Chandrasekaran and Mr.V.Radhakrishnan in Sri Lanka Parliament had earlier announced its decision to support Mr.Ranil Wickremasinghe in the forthcoming presidential election.

Chandrasekaran speaking to TamilNet said that he had constructive discussions with Thamilchelvan. "Liberation Tigers fully understand the stand taken by the UPF on behalf of the Upcountry people in the forthcoming elections. We will be closely monitoring the political posturing and moves by the political parties in the South but will not in anyway interfere with peoples right to exercise their franchise freely," Thamilchelvan told him, said Chandrasekaran.

Chandrasekan further told TamilNet that Thamilchelvan had said, "LTTE is more interested in the contents of proposals put forward by any leader of the South to resolve the Tamil National issue, and has no interest in the individuals aspiring to become the President of Sri Lanka.

Thamilchelvan had assured him that "LTTE is cognizant of the vitriolic propaganda advanced by Sinhala extremists working with leading presidential candidates against the Tamil people. LTTE will be alert and be well prepared to confront any situation that will impact the security of Tamil people by the potentially dangerous developments in the South," Chandrasekaran said.

As conditions for supporting Mr Wickremesinghe UPF has proposed that talks with the LTTE should recommence on the implementation of the Interim Self Governing Authority (ISGA) and the P-TOMS and to find an appropriate political solution to the ethnic issue. Upcountry Tamils should be considered as a separate nationality when finding political solution to the ethnic issue, UPF told Mr Wickremasinghe.
