Tamil National Peoples Front launched in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Monday, 01 March 2010, 06:26 GMT]
It was announced that a new Tamil national political alliance called ‘Tamil National Peoples Front (TNPF)' has been formed, in a press meet held Sunday at the Jaffna office of All Ceylon Tamil Congress (ACTC) party. Former Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentarians Gejendrakumar Ponnambalam, S. Kajendren, Ms. Pathmini Sithamparanathan and TNA activists including ACTC chief candidate Sinnathurai Varatharajan for Jaffna electoral district were present at the press briefing. The new Alliance stated that it was based firmly on the concept of Tamil nationalism: Homeland, Tamil nationhood, Tamil sovereignty and Tamils Right to self-determination.

TNPF will attempt to sideline the elements that lead the TNA on 'wrong paths', but the alliance, mainly between the former TNA parliamentarians and civil society leaders, doesn't seek to 'to disintegrate the unity of the TNA', it was told in the press meet.

Representatives of various public organizations and ACTC candidates contesting Jaffna electorate in the parliamentary election were also present at the meeting.

A detailed report is to be released shortly, the organizers said.
