CWC, TMVP to support Gotabaya

Two Tamil political parties recently pledged their support to the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) Presidential candidate Gotabaya Rajapaksa for the forthcoming Presidential Election.

Accordingly, Ceylon Workers Congress (CWC) led by Arumugam Thondaman pledged its support to SLPP candidate Gotabaya Rajapaksa yesterday (13) following a decision taken at their National Council meeting.

On Saturday (12), Tamil Makkal Viduthalai Pulikal (TMVP) led by former Eastern Province CM Sivanesathurai Chandrakanthan alias Pillayan also pledged its support to SLPP Presidential candidate Gotabaya Rajapaksa. The TMVP extended its support at a press conference held on Saturday.

Pillayan, a former LTTE member, and four suspects allegedly involved in the murder of Batticaloa District TNA Parliamentarian Joseph Pararajasingam have been in remand custody since 2015. At the 2018 Local Government Elections, the TMVP obtained 42,000 votes.
