Jaffna conditions not conducive for elections: TULF

[TamilNet, Monday, 08 December 1997, 23:59 GMT]
TULF politburo member and former MP Mr. Mavai Senathirarajah who is currently in the peninsula told the TamilNet's Jaffna correspondent today that the government has announced the local government elections to scuttle the peace signal in LTTE leader Prabhaharan's Maveerar day speech.

He denied reports that he had visited Jaffna to find candidates for the TULF to contest the local government elections in Jaffna.

He said that conditions in Jaffna are not conducive to holding elections and that an election held under an army cannot be free and fair.

However, Mr. Senathirajah said that the TULF, as a democratic party, has a duty to contest elections.
