EPRLF Opposes TNA National List Appointments

The Eelam People’s Revolutionary Liberation Front (EPRLF), a constituent member of the Tamil National Alliance opposed the manner in which the alliance appointed its two national list candidates.
The EPRLF leader Suresh Premachandran said that the Ilankai Tamil Arasu Kachchi leadership made the decision without consulting the other parties in the alliance.
He told media that he does not have a personal opposition against any of the appointed MPs. However, he cannot approve the procedure through which they were appointed, he said.
Since TNA is not a registered political party, it contests in elections under the ITAK ticket. ITAK is the largest party of the alliance which also includes TELO and EPRLF.
The TNA announced yesterday that it was appointing two defeated candidates from Trncomalee and Vanni as its national list MPs. Both are members of the ITAK.
