THE National Council of the National Liberal party would like to say a big ‘Thank You!’ to all those people who voted for both Jagdeesh Singh and Sockalingam ‘Yogi’ Yogalingam on May 7. We’ve calculated that the NLP has doubled its Euro vote in the two seats: 461 in Ealing Southall – where Jagdeesh stood and 166 in Ruislip, Northwood & Pinner – where Yogi stood.
At this stage of our development, organising for an election is as important as the result. To this end, we’d also like to thank our candidates, their election agents, front-line activists and those who worked tirelessly behind the scenes.
One really pleasing feature of our campaign was the sheer number of youths out leafletting and campaiging for our candidates. This augers well for the future.
Our main focus for the election was to promote the idea of national and political Sef-Determination. Slowly but surely we are making this a real political issue. To this end we are already making plans for future elections.
Indeed, everything the NLP does follows long term investments and strategy.
