SLFP expresses "grave concern" over ISGA proposals

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 04 November 2003, 07:54 GMT]
SLFP issued a long statement today condemning the Tamil proposal for Interim Self-Governing Authority. "The SLFP, and the millions who support it, will never be a party to robbing the people of Sri Lanka of their sovereignty. The SLFP will not allow any international consortium or “safety net”, in the name of a spurious, unjust peace, to foist on the people of Sri Lanka any extra Constitutional arrangement that is not acceptable to all the People, all the communities that inhabit our land" said the statement.

The statement also said that the party "wishes to reiterate, on behalf of the people of Sri Lanka, its total and permanent commitment to the sovereignty of the Republic. Our Constitution declares that sovereignty is in the People, it is inalienable and indivisible: it is ours; it belongs to us. It is not a tradeable commodity to be weighed in the balance of expedience."

Meanwhile, there are speculations among the political circles in Colombo that the President will be taking over of the portfolios of defense, interior and media ministries. Informed media sources said an official statement from the President is expected later today.
