Former LTTE international fund raiser and weapons procurer Selvarasa Pathmanathan alias KP, former LTTE women’s wing leader Subramaniam Sivakamy alias Thamilini and former LTTE spokesman and propaganda wing leader Velayutham Dayanthi alias Daya Master have applied for UPFA nominations for the upcoming Northern Provincial Council elections to be held in September, Daily Mirror learns.

SLFP General Secretary and Minister Maithripala Sirisena said the three former LTTE members will be asked to appear before the party’s nomination board when it begen interviewing prospective applicants who sought nominations for the elections to the Northern, North-Western and Central provincial councils.

The UPFA nomination board will begin interviews on July 6.

The elections are expected to be held in the three provinces in September with the North-Central and Central Provinces expected to be dissolved at the end of this week.

“The two LTTE front men and the woman have been rehabilitated. They haven’t been convicted in any Sri Lankan court of law. Therefore, I do not see why we should not consider their applications to contest the NPC elections,” the minister said.

They will have to first obtain SLFP membership or that of a constituent party affiliated to the UPFA before being given nominations by the UPFA.

Meanwhile, reports said that Daya Master will help prepare UPFA’s manifesto for the NPC election.

He is reported to have said that candidates who were to contest on the UPFA ticket have identified the issues faced by the Tamil people and the solutions to these issues would be included in the party's election manifesto.

Daya Master has said the Minister and EPDP Leader Douglas Devananda he and other ruling party members representing all communities are in the process of preparing the manifesto.

He had surrendered to the armed forces during the last stages of humanitarian operations and KP was arrested by Sri Lankan intelligent agents on August 5, 2009 in Bangkok, Thailand.

Thamalini crossed over to government held areas on May 20 soon after the annihilation of the top LTTE leadership including Prabakaran. The court sent her for protective rehabilitation at Welikada Prison and later at the Poonthottam rehabilitation center in Vavuniya. (Sandun A. Jayasekera)

    Please tell me what right has the LTTE's women's wing leader got to represent a political party ?. How many of sri lankans were killed by her guidance. Why are you politicians treating your own people like this ?. Are you all not human ?.

    It's encouraging to see them getting involved in local politics democratically. They are free to join any political party or have their own party. This is the transformation that the international community must appreciate and encourage.
