CWC leader minister Arumugan Thondaman and DPF leader Mano Ganesan met urgently today in Colombo and decided to field a common list of candidates for Ratnapura and Kegalle districts for Sabaragamuwa PC elections.
The common list will consist candidates from Ceylon Workers Congress, Democratic People’s Front and Up-Country People’s Front under CWC’s cockerel symbol.
The common list is to seek Tamil democratic representation in Sabaragamuwa provincial council said, Mano Ganesan. He also said that UPF led by Radha Krishnan MP and Mrs. Chandrasekeran has also extended support to this move.
He further said that, DPF being a vibrant party in the opposition will continue to oppose the government. We will continue to work with UNP, NSSP and USP and other opposition parties. We recognize the participations of CWC and UPF in the government. Our join exercise is only to seek Tamil democratic representation.
Under the current electoral system, we have reasonable opportunity to obtain our representation only if we go together beyond party lines.
