JVP abandons Fonseka?

[TamilNet, Friday, 07 January 2011, 13:43 GMT]
SriLanka's election department today announced that the nominations for the dissolved 308 local government bodies will be called from January 20th to 27th, 2011. Meanwhile, local newspapers said that the Democratic National Alliance party led by jailed former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka, will not contest the forthcoming local government elections.

Instead, the JVP which in past contested elections with Fonseka’s DNA party, has decided to go solo at the polls.

The party has however claimed that it will continue to work in alliance with the DNA in all other issues, despite not forging an alliance with Fonseka's party to contest the election.
