Sampanthan leads Tamil parties' alliance in Trinco

[TamilNet, Thursday, 18 October 2001, 19:11 GMT]
The Trincomalee branch of the Tamil United Liberation Front (TULF) Thursday unanimously decided to nominate Mr.R.Sampanthan, Secretary General of the party as the lead candidate of Tamil parties' alliance for the Trincomalee district at the forthcoming general election.

Mr.Sampanthan further said, "The Alliance formed by the four Tamil political parties -TULF, TELO, All Ceylon Tamil Congress (ACTC) and EPRLF (Suresh wing) would certainly help to promote the Tamil cause in parliamentary politics".

The other candidates to be nominated in the common list of the Tamil parties' alliance for the Trincomalee district would be finalised within few days, Mr.Sampanthan said.

Candidates of ACTC and TELO would also be accommodated in the common list according to the Memorandum of Understanding scheduled to be signed between these parties shortly, party sources said.
