TNA JVP arrive at consensus to work together on national issues including 20A 700 01

Tamil National Alliance and Janata Vimukty Peramuna have arrived at a consensus to work together on national issues including the abolition of Executive Presidency.

The consensus was reached when TNA Leader Samapanthan met JVP Leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake at JVP’s Head Office at Pelawatta on Monday, March 12.

Dissanayaka said that abolishing the executive presidency and getting all to contribute in power-sharing was discussed and the leaders of both parties paid attention to the need for a new political tendency in an environment where the so-called main political parties have degenerated.

He added that despite differences, there are many areas the JVP and the TNA could ideologically agree and the TNA’s support ideologically to abolish executive presidency is a healthy sign he pointed out. Both parties were able to hold an important discussion that would lead the politics in the country towards a new horizon.

The Leader of the TNA R Sampanthan, speaking to the media about the discussion said he agrees with the views expressed by Mr Anura Dissanayaka to the media. He also pointed out that the JVP was informed about the discussions the TNA had with the President and the Prime Minister in connection with the devolution of power.

Sampanthan urged that the JVP and the TNA should work together to take the politics in the country along a right, healthy path and expressed hope that it could definitely occur in the future.

The Leader of the TNA R. Sampanthan, Messrs. M Sumanthiran Sumanthiran, Selvam Adaikalanathan and D. Siddharthan represented the TNA while the JVP was represented by its Leader Anura Dissanayaka, General Secretary Tilvin Silva and the Member of the Political Bureau K.D. Lal Kantha.
