Clerical Union calls for Jaffna Postal vote boycott

[TamilNet, Sunday, 06 November 2005, 15:58 GMT]
Tamil Government Clerical Services Association Sunday made a public call for all Government workers in Jaffna district who are eligible for postal votes for the forthcoming Sri Lanka presidential elections, to boycott the vote in unison, in a media release issued in Jaffna Sunday. "Both presidential candidates are focussed on becoming the supreme commander of the Sri Lanka Security Forces to continue suppression of Tamil people. Neither is interested in finding an amicable solution to the burning Tamil National question," the statement said of candidates' intentions.

"In this political climate, it is critical that Tamil people express their feeling clearly to the International Community which is keenly observing the outcome of the elections.

"While the general public in Jaffna district and all across NorthEast have resolved to boycott the elections, the Government workers too should join with them to express their wholehearted agreement with the peoples stand in boycotting the poll," the media statement said.

Tamil Government Clerical Services Association's call for boycott comes in the wake of another appeal by Consortium of Tamil Speaking Peoples Trade Unions in Jaffna to the public servants in the district to boycott postal voting for the November 17 presidential poll.
