JVP quits from APC deliberation

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 12 December 2006, 10:53 GMT]
The Sinhala nationalist Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) has withdrawn from the deliberation of the All Parties Conference (APC) in protest to the report of eleven-member experts panel report. The decision to quit the APC was announced by Somawanse Amerasinghe, leader of the JVP at a press briefing held Tuesday, electronic media sources said.

APC has received about seven hundred proposals regarding the question of finding a political solution to the ethnic problem. However eleven members of the seventeen experts' panel has released a report to the media and that report goes against the wishes of the people of the country, further said Mr.Somawanse Amerasinghe.

Meanwhile Professor Tissa Vitarane, Chairman of the APC said he would request the JVP not to leave from the APC sittings.

In the meantime Wickremabahu Karunaratne, leader of the New Left Front (NLF) at another press briefing held Tuesday requested the government to place the eleven-member experts' panel report before the LTTE for their consideration.
