Tamil political parties should unite to find a decision in facing presidential election - JUSU

[TamilNet, Thursday, 31 December 2009, 03:54 GMT]
Jaffna University Student Union (JUSU), in a press report Wednesday, said that all Tamil factions should forget their political differences to arrive at a united decision in regard to the forthcoming presidential election. Decisions spurred by emotions in the past and their consequences should be remembered and Tamils should not be allowed to be exploited like puppets in the hands of Southern political forces, the report further said.

Following is the gist of the JUSU press release:

We should use the available opportunities and continue to fight for our rights.

Tamil political parties should not allow Southern political parties to use our people to come to power.

A prosperous future for the Tamils should be the aim in arriving upon a united decision on the issue of facing the presidential election.

It is not wise for the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentarians to contest in the next general election, paving way for the Tamils to loose their bargaining power.

Our union pledges to carry out any decision arrived on by the Tamil political parties unitedly.
