JVP issues ultimatum for coalition break-up

[TamilNet, Friday, 10 June 2005, 05:53 GMT]
Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP), the main political ally of ruling United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA) Government, informed on Friday at a press conference in Colombo that it will leave the UPFA coalition on 16th of June unless President Chandrika Kumaratunga gives up the idea of signing a Joint Mechanism with the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) before June 15th midnight. The announcement was made by the JVP leader, Mr Somavanse Amarasinghe at Sri Lanka Foundation Institute in Colombo. The JVP has 39 seats in the 225-seat Parliament of Sri Lanka.

The announcement by the JVP follows the joint-statement by the Buddhist prelates belonging to four Chapters of the Buddhist order in Sri Lanka, the Maha Sangha, demanded President Kumaratunga to make a clear statement, within 24 hours, on whether she intends to abrogate the Joint Mechanism proposal.

President Kumaratunga Friday morning assured the Maha Sangha that there would be no agreement with the LTTE without the consensus of the Buddhist order in Sri Lanka.
