The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) has decided on a formula to distribute nominations and the number of seats among the parties of their alliance in certain districts including Trincomalee, Jaffna and Ampara. Speaking to The Sunday Leader, TNA MP Suresh Premachandran said that they will not form an alliance with the UNP or any other political party but they will contest as the TNA alliance.
“The parties within the TNA still have differences of opinion with reference to certain matters but all the parties under the TNA umbrella will contest together as an alliance without joining any other party,” he added. According to Premachandran, they are already in a process of determining a formula to distribute nominations equitably among the parties of the TNA.
“We have already decided the numbers of nominations distributed to each party of the TNA in Jaffna, Trincomalee and Ampara districts. We are now in the process of deciding nominations for the Batticaloa district and Mannar district,” he added. According to him, the number of nominations allocated to each TNA member party will be released once they finalize the list in the remaining districts closer to the election.
