TNA still not decided which candidate to support Featured

The discussions held between five Tamil political parties to decide on which presidential candidate they would support had ended without reaching a decision.

Accordingly, these parties are expected to meet again today (01) in Jaffna to take a decision.

The three main parties in the TNA, the ITAK, TELO and PLOTE and the TMK party headed by C.V. Wigneswaran and Suresh Premachandran’s EPRLF had participated in the discussions.

The political party headed by Gajendrakumar Ponnambalam had also joined the discussions. Suresh Premachandran said that once these parties have reached a decision they would notify the TNA leadership of the decision and the Central Committee and announce the decision on which candidate they would support thereafter.
