Five political parties to register with TNA: MP
As the much anticipated talks with the government had failed the five main political parties that are grouped together under the TNA are contemplating to register with the TNA as a political party, with the commissioner of elections, MP Suresh Premachandran said in Vavuniya.
He also said the Ilangai Thamil Arasu Kachchi, Tamil United Liberation Front, TELO, PLOTTE, and EPRLF came under the umbrella of the TNA and were engaged in political activities, however they had not registered themselves as the Tamil National Alliance.
These opinions were expressed by the MP at a Press meeting held in Vavuniya to appraise the media about the political future of the TNA.
He further said they strongly opposed the proposal made by the government in establishing a Senate for the administration of the north and east, and they would take steps to hold a general convention in a location in the north east area in March after strengthening the party.
The TNA MP for the Wanni District S. Adaikkalanathan who was present at this occasion said the government had not announced the position regarding the elections to the north east provincial councils and therefore they were not ready for elections. Even though opportunities were provided on and off for the TNA to meet international representatives, it was very unjustifiable that they were never invited as participants at the discussions the government had with these international representatives.
