SLMC reiterates conditional support to UPFA government

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 22 June 2004, 17:05 GMT]
Mr.Rauff Hakim, Leader of the Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) told media persons in Kandy Monday that his party is prepared to consider supporting the United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA) government if it decided to abandon its attempt to revert the parliament into a constituent assembly and accommodate a separate Muslim delegation in the future peace talks with the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).

Mr. Hakim met with the press after he paid his homage to the newly elected Mahanayake Thera of Malwatte Chapter Most Venerable Tibbotuwawe Sri Siddhartha Sumangala Thera in Kandy, capital of central province, sources said

Mr. Hakim further said that Ms Chandrika Kumaratunge should first think that she is the Executive President of the whole country and not of her political party.

"We have come together with the Opposition to show our disapproval of the undemocratic acts of ruling party parliamentarians in the august assembly," said Mr.Rauff Hakim.

President Ms Chandrika Kumaratunge was interested only in clinging to power and was not really interested in resuming the stalled peace talks, said Mr. Hakim.
