[TamilNet, Friday, 31 March 2006, 12:33 GMT]
"Local electoral rout of Sinhala extremist parties, the marxist Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP), and Buddhist monks party Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) is a clear mandate to Sri Lanka President Mahinda Rajapakse to take immediate steps to move peace process forward. Urgently, the Unitary Constitution and rejection of concepts of Tamil Homeland should be removed from "Mahinda Chintanaya," and replaced with concepts supporting Tamils right to self-determination," said Sivajilingam, Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentarian commenting on the unfolding local election results giving UPFA huge victory and ITAK demonstrating its support base in the East.

"Electoral victories of Ilankai Tamil Arasu Katchi (ITAK) in the districts of Trincomalee and Amparai has inflicted a stunning defeat of the paramilitaries allied with Government of Sri Lanka. ," Sivajilingam added.

Suresh Premachandran, TNA parliamentarian, said, "Tamil speaking people in the East are fully supporting the Tamil National struggle. By give ITAK huge electoral success, Tamil people in the East has rejected outright Colombo's efforts to portray paramilitaries as a viable democratic force in the East."
