Independent group pays deposit for Jaffna MC Election

[TamilNet, Thursday, 11 June 2009, 22:06 GMT]
An independent group representing important factions in Jaffna peninsula paid the deposit money Thursday to contest in the forthcoming Jaffna Municipal Council (JMC) elections, Election Department sources in Jaffna said. The sources, however, declined to reveal the particulars about the independent group which was the first to pay the deposit money due to security reasons.

Already, EPRLF Varathar faction, Tamil United Liberation Front and a group consisting of three political parties including PLOTE had announced their intention of contesting in the JMC election.

An independent group coming forward to contest in the JMC elections in the above context is a significant move, Jaffna civil society sources said.
