TNA against Commonwealth

2013 Oct 15

TNA national list parliamentarian M.A Sumanthiran said that the coalition is against the staging of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in Sri Lanka.

“The Sri Lankan government has violated the norms of the Commonwealth and that is why we are against it. The ousting of the country’s Chief Justice is one of the instances where the government had violated the basic foundations of the Commonwealth” he said speaking to reporters in Jaffna.

Hailing the decision of the Canadian government to not participate in the summit, Sumanthiran said that the Indian government should follow the example.

“The Indian government should look into the reasons as to why Canada decided against participating and make a decision accordingly” he said.
