British Tamils Forum urges UK Tamils to exercise voting right in upcoming election

The British Tamils Forum has urged all UK Tamils to vote in the upcoming general election.

BTF encouraged British Tamils to support the candidate that: recognises the Tamil right to self-determination on the island of Sri Lanka; recognises the genocide committed against Tamils by then Sri Lankan state; and supports a time-bound plan for the full implementation of UN Human Rights Council resolutions on Sri Lanka.

“Let us use our votes wisely to strengthen our voice in the UK parliament,” the forum said.

The UK general election which will take place on Thursday was called in April by British Prime Minister, Theresa May, just two years into the current government’s term.
