"We solidly stand behind the Interim Self Governing Authority (ISGA) proposal submitted by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam. Tamils also have expressed their firm stand that they are fully backing the ISGA proposal through their verdict in the Friday poll. The trials and tribulations of the hundreds of thousands of displaced Tamil people now languishing in refugee camps should be brought to an end very soon with the formation of the ISGA where the Tamils should be allowed to reconstruct and rehabilitate their war devastated province", said Mr.Sampanthan during his discussion with Mr.Bradman Weerakone, sources said

The Prime Minister Mr.Ranil Wickremasinghe is reported to be in constant touch with Mr.Sampanthan since Friday, Colombo political sources said.
