JVP wants to win local councils before national elections

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 28 February 2006, 10:53 GMT]
"Mahinda Rajapakse Government has deviated from finding a solution to the conflict within the unitary constitution of Sri Lanka and our reasons for defeating the Ranil Wickremesinghe Government are not bearing any results. Mr Rajapakse has failed to fulfil the promises given to us before the Presidential elections," said Propaganda Secretary of Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP and parliamentarian Mr Wimal Weerawanse addressing a rally in Kataragama, southern area in Sri Lanka in support of local council candidates of JVP Monday, political sources in Colombo said.

"Mr Wickremesinghe signed the Cease Fire Agreement (CFA) with the Liberation Tigers in 2002. The Sri Lanka Government is continuing to honor the CFA even now.

"Our people will have realized the futility is giving the power to govern to large parties such as the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) or the United National Party (UNP). We urge the southern electorate to give the power to JVP to govern the local council. We will then be able to demonstrate what good governance is.

"Large parties have had their chance for the last 40 years to demonstrate their competence. They have failed to exercise the power honorably and effectively.

"JVP aims to capture power to rule Sri Lanka in the future. Before that we will demonstrate we will show our competency in good governance by serving as your main representatives in the local council," Weerawanse said.
