TNA rift over CM deepens

The rift in the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) further deepened with the northern members of the Illangai Thamil Arasu Katchi (ITAK) threatening to contest the Northern Provincial council polls independently if former Supreme Court Judge C.V.Vigneswaran is nominated as the Chief Ministerial candidate by the TNA for the polls.ITAK is a coalition member of the TNA and they want TNA General Secretary Mavai Senathirajah to be nominated for the post while TNA leader R. Sampanthan is backing Vigneswaran. According to reports, ITAK members in Jaffna, Vavuniya and also Trincomalee in the East have sent a letter to the TNA leader strongly opposing moves to nominate Vigneswaran. At least two rounds of discussions have been held among the alliance members on the issue but a consensus has not been reached.While most TNA members feel Mavai Senathirajah is the best candidate since he has been in the North most of his life, others feel Vigneswaran may be best with his legal background. (Colombo Gazette) If the TNA appoints Vigneswaran then ITAK members in Jaffna, Vavuniya, Kilionochchi and Mannar have said they will contest the Northern polls independently and not under the TNA ticket. read more
