WPPF quits All Party Conference

[TamilNet, Friday, 28 July 2006, 12:09 GMT]
Western Province People's Front (WPPF) leader, Mano Ganeshan, said Friday that his party is quitting the All Party Representatives group, political sources in Colombo said. "We joined the APC on the basis of exploring ways for the communities in Sri Lanka to live together. We now realize that the APC is an elaborate drama to fool the International Community," Mr Ganesan said.

"We cannot be participants in an effort that denigrates the rights of the Tamil people to share in sovereignty and political power of Sri Lanka," Mr Ganesan added.

All Party Conference (APC) was initiated by Sri Lanka’s President Mahinda Rajapakse to explore constitutional reforms, but many political observers and LTTE have questioned the bona fides of the Sri Lanka's President in mooting the process.

Observers point out that strident anti-federalists of the calibre of H.L.de Silva and Mr Gomin Dayasiri, forming the core of the expert panel formed to advise the APC, the APC has little chance of making any progress towards peace.
