Tamil-speaking voters decided new SL President, says JVP

[TamilNet, Saturday, 10 January 2015, 14:19 GMT]
The major share of the victory of Mr Maithiripala Sirisena as the sixth president of the country belongs to Tamil-speaking people although the JVP had a ‘little say’ in the outcome of the result, said Anura Dissanayake MP, the president of the Sinhala nationalist Janatha Vimukti Peramuna (JVP), at a media briefing held in Colombo on Friday evening. Currently, the JVP is prepared to give ‘pressure’ from outside to ensure ‘good governance’ via the new SL President Maithiripala Sirisena, the JVP leader further stated.

The JVP leader said his party was yet to decide on becoming a constituent of the so-called ‘national government’ by Maithiripala Sirisena.

While claiming that his party had played a vital role in defeating Mahinda Rajapaksa as SL president, the JVP leader was reluctant in sharing the credit of electing Maithiripala as the new president, political observers in Colombo said, adding that the JVP has been accommodated at a Sinhala nationalist hardline position with the intention of keeping Tamil collaborationists at a distant positions in the so-called ‘national government’ of Maithirpala Sirisena.
