NPC urges NorthEast Tamils to vote

[TamilNet, Sunday, 30 October 2005, 12:26 GMT]
Media Director of the Sri Lanka National Peace Council (NPC), Dr.Jehan Perera, Saturday appealed to the Tamil people vote for a candidate who could promote peaceful political solution to the ethnic problem and not to boycott the presidential election. He was addressing a seminar on "North-South Dialogue for Rebuilding of Sri Lankan Democratic Institutions," held at the Media Research and Training Centre of the Jaffna University.

He added governments in Sri Lanka from 1995 till 2001 insisted for a political solution without involving the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam LTTE) in the peace talks. Only the National Peace Council was for the involvement of LTTE in the peace process.

Prime Minister Mr.Mahinda Rajapakse's sole aim is to become the President of Sri Lanka by getting 75 percent of Sinhalese votes. He signed the MoU with the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) and the Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) to achieve his objective. He has no support of the minority communities and the leader of his party, he said.

"Although the current ceasefire agreement now holding for nearly four years has not produced any constructive results other than the cessation of hostilities, Tamil people should not fail to exercise their franchise," he said.
