Former LTTE members contesting the Parliament election released their election manifesto in Jaffna today.
In their manifesto, the Crusaders For Democracy called for a political solution to the Tamil issue based on the Indo-Lanka peace accord and the Oslo peace declaration reached between the LTTE and the Government.
The manifesto also notes that if the Government fails to address the issues faced by the Tamils then the Crusaders For Democracy will continue to push for a solution even after the August 17 election.
The former LTTE cadres contesting from the Jaffna District have all been rehabilitated and are led by former journalist N. Vidyatharan.
Following the Parliamentary election, the Crusaders For Democracy will look to grow in numbers and register as a political party.
The Crusaders For Democracy are contesting the election this month as an independent group. (Colombo Gazette)
