99.2 percent voters consent Tamil Eelam in Holland

[TamilNet, Monday, 25 January 2010, 04:57 GMT]
In the referendum held in Holland on Sunday on the formation of independent and sovereign Tamil Eelam in the North and East of the island of Sri Lanka, 2,750 voters participated and 99.2 percent of them aspired for it. 2,728 said yes, 9 voted no and 13 votes were invalid. The poll organised by an independent group of the diaspora in the Netherlands was conducted in 15 centres across the country under the supervision of non-Tamil election officials.

The organisers estimated roughly 4,000 eligible Eezham Tamil voters in the country and the turnout was 68.7 percent.

As the size of the country and the number of voters were small, the organisers were largely depending on door-to-door campaign for participation.

A comment commonly heard in the four non English-speaking European countries, Germany, Switzerland and Holland, which went for the referendum last weekend, and in France where it was held in mid-December, was that the democratic exercise would have become much more easier to organise, had there been a Tamil visual media providing adequate coverage.
