"The TGTE also congratulates the Scottish Green Party for their gains"The victories of pro-independence parties of Scotland, reflect the aspirations of a growing majority of the Scottish People to decide their political destiny through referendum.”— Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE)NEW YORK, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, May 12, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ --
The Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam(TGTE) and the Eelam Tamil people congratulate Nicola Sturgeon, the leader of the Scottish National Party(SNP) for her impressive electoral victory. The TGTE also congratulates the Scottish Green Party for their gains.
The victories of the SNP and the Scottish Green Parties, the pro-independence parties of Scotland, reflect the aspirations of a growing majority of the Scottish People to decide their political and fiscal destiny as well as the protection of their national heritage through referendum.
We admire Nicola Sturgeon's leadership in articulating the true aspirations of her people. Her leadership is a model for leaders in countries where People are clamoring for the realization of their inherent right to self-determination and their ability to protect their history, culture, and dignity.
As Honorable Jose' Ramos Horta the 1996 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate and the former President of Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste said, in the 5th annual Mullivaikkal Memorial Lecture (Tamil Genocide) held in 2020, "Ruling Sates have the responsibility to ask themselves why a nation of people such as the Tamils, who have an incredible sense of identity and history, want to be on their own; States also must acknowledge that something must have been going wrong." He spoke of the struggle of the Tamil people in the same vein as the extraordinary demonstrations of the same phenomenon by Catalans in Spain, the Kurds in Turkey and the Scottish in UK by way of current examples.
TGTE firmly believe that it is the fundamental right of the People to choose their rulers as well as to decide the political unit in which they want to live. We hope that the Scottish people will be able to vote in a referendum setting out their future – it is their right and we wish Nicola Sturgeon, the SNP and the Scottish Green Parties, success in their efforts to ensure the Scottish people can exercise their right to self-determination.
