New Tamil coalition to sign deal

2014 Jan 16

Douglas DevanandaA committee has been formed to work out an agreement to be signed by the new Tamil coalition consisting of several Tamil political parties, the Eelam People’s Democratic Party (EPDP) said today.

The EPDP said that the Tamil political parties involved in the discussions to form the coalition hope to sign the agreement soon.

EPDP spokesman Nelson Edirisinghe said that the main aim of the coalition is to work towards a political solution for the Tamils through the Parliament Select Committee (PSC) appointed to address the Nation issue.

The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) had refused to be part of the PSC but the new coalition, which includes the EPDP and the TULF led by V. Anandasangari, will work with the PSC on the National issue.

Representatives of Leftist parties attended the inaugural meeting held by the coalition on Sunday and a committee has now been formed to work on the agreement to be signed between the parties. (Colombo Gazette)
