[TamilNet, Tuesday, 15 December 2009 11:06 One Comment]

"There is no point supporting either of the two main candidates, Rajapaksa or Fonseka," said Tamil National Alliance (TNA) Jaffna district parliamentarian K. Sivajilingam Tuesday morning after making his deposit at the Sri Lankan Election Secretariat in Colombo stating that he would contest the presidential polls as an independent candidate.

"This is my individual decision and not a position taken by the TNA," Mr. Sivajilingam told media.

Mr. Sivajillingam is a senior member of the Tamil Eelam Liberation Organistaion (TELO), an ex-militant political party headed by Selvam Adaikkalanathan.
