TNA likely to receive the Eastern provincial Chief Ministerial post; TNA leaders including Sambandan in a discussion with the President
TNA MP M.A. Sumandiran quoted President Maithreepala Sirisena as saying that it is suitable granting the Chief Ministerial post of the Eastern Provincial Council to Tamil National Alliance.
A TNA delegation led by party leader R. Sampandan had discussed this matter with President Maithreepala Sirisena at the Presidential Secretariat yesterday.
A clash of opinion over the chief ministerial post of the Eastern Provincial Council has been created at the moment as SLMC also had claimed the top post in the council.
A meeting to settle this issue was held between the leaders of the two parties recently, but both parties concluded the meeting without any settlement.
