SLFP candidates contest via EPRLF lists

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 23 December 1997, 23:59 GMT]
The EPRLF filed nominations to all the local government bodies in the Jaffna peninsula this morning including the Valvettithurai urban council. Former central committee member of the EROS Kandasamy Balanadarajah (Sinna Bala) is the group's chief candidate for the Waligamam east Pradeshiya Sabha.

Sinna Bala worked with the Eelanatham daily while it was published in Jaffna after he opted to remain with the faction of the EROS which did not leave the LTTE controlled areas in 1990. Many Tamil political observers expressed surprise at his decision.

The group has included six candidates in its election lists who are members of the Sudu Nelum movement, the powerful propaganda arm of the SLFP led by Sri Lankan President confidante and cabinet minister Managala Samaraweera.

The chief organiser of the Sudu Nelum movement for the Jaffna district Mr. 'Mangala' Nesan is an EPRLF candidate for the Jaffna municipality.

Observers said that this implies a tacit election alliance between the SLFP and the EPRLF. The group told TamilNet that it has fielded thirty women candidates.

Following is the list of EPRLF's chief candidates:

Waligamam east Pradeshiya Sabha - Kandasamy Balanadarajah.

Waligamam north Pradeshiya Sabha - Nagamuttu Nagendran (EPRLF cadre)
