Left alliance wants Norway out
There is growing opposition against Norways role in the work to get the LTTE to the negotiation table, according to the alliance between the strong nationalistic left party JVP and the presidents party SLFP.
A majority of the population is displeased with Norways role here, claimed Tilvin Silva, the alliance leader at a press conference.
The alliance wants to completely reduce Norways role when the time comes.
President Chandrika Kumaratungas advisor Mangala Samaraweera said that there are great doubts about Norways neutrality.
The statements from the newly formed alliance are by many considered to be part of the upcoming election. It is expected that the President will call for a new election in order to get the political situation back on track. The government, which has worked closely with the Norwegians, have a majority in the national assembly.
Norway has not conducted any negotiation work since the President Kumaratunga stopped the peace negotiations in November.
