Jagath is the first ever Sri Lankan of Sub continent heritage and the community to be nominated for a Federal Senate ticket by the NSW Labor party.

“The trust that the community has shown in me is an honour and I am grateful for the recognition given to my work," he said.

“It has been nearly 20 years since I commenced working with the Union Movement (United Voice/AMWU) and have continued to do so until today.

During my entire time in AustraliaI have closely worked with various communities and supported many when the need arose and there was an opportunity to help create a positive environment for the advancement of the members of those communities.

Australia is a land of opportunity and many persons from various echelons of the Sri Lankan community in Australia have benefitted from such opportunities. I have watched with pride and satisfaction their success and the enhancement of their socioeconomic status

I have recently been selected and honoured to be a Senate Candidate for Labour Party in NSW at the upcoming Federal Election" he stated.
