UNP Jaffna electorate chief candidate releases election manifesto

[TamilNet, Friday, 12 March 2010, 06:02 GMT]
The chief candidate of United National Party (UNP) for Jaffna electorate in the forthcoming general election, Ms. Vijayakala Maheswaran, said that her party is prepared to put forth a solution to the ethnic issue based on the Oslo Declaration that was considered in the talks held between UNP and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) in Oslo, in a press briefing where she released her election manifesto Thursday at her party office in Thirunelveali in Jaffna. Srijayanan, the news editor of Tamil National daily Virakesari, a candidate in the UNP list of nomination for Jaffna electorate, was present at the press meet.

UNP needs only six more seats than what it won in the last election to strengthen its force in the parliament and hence all should vote for UNP, Vijyakala said.

Vijayakala is the wife of late Maheswaran, the UNP parliamentarian for Jaffna who was assassinated during his term of office.
