[TamilNet, Sunday, 13 November 2005, 17:45 GMT]
Tamil Students Consortium in the districts of Trincomalee and Amparai in the east have appealed to Tamil people to boycott the presidential poll to demonstrate that they are not interested in the power struggle between the Sinhala political leadership in the south. In statements released in Trincomalee and Amparai Sunday the consortiums have stated that it's time for Tamil people in the northeast to tell the international community and Sinhala people in the south of Sri Lanka that they are not prepared to be deceived by leaders of Sinhala chauvinist political parties any more, sources said.

"Please be firm and be in your residence on November 17 without participating in the presidential poll. The successful boycott of the election would be a victory for Tamil people who have been deceived by Sinhala political leaders since Sri Lanka gained political independence", the statement said.
