Colombo: Elections for the "transnational government" of Tamil Eelam will be held in April, 2010 among the diaspora of the community, a pro-LTTE group said today.

"The Advisory Committee for the Provisional Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam is making arrangements to hold the elections in April 2010," a statement from the group said.

"We continue to receive suggestions as well as specific questions from the Tamil Diaspora. We are set to announce the names of coordinators and CWGs for other countries where Tamils live in large numbers in the coming weeks," it said.

Over the coming two months it expects to conduct consultations with the Tamil Diaspora community to get feedback to its proposal to date and to discuss some of the questions that have been raised, it said in a release.

"We are set to announce the names of coordinators and CWGs for other countries where Tamils live in large numbers in the coming weeks. Progress is being made toward holding elections in April 2010," it added.

"The task of forming a Provisional Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam is a fundamentally democratic effort to unite all Tamil entities," it said.
