The TNA says it does not anticipate accepting ministry portfolios of a new government to be formed after August 17th.
Party General Secretary and former MP Mawai Senadhirajah said that his party wants to merge the Northern and the Eastern provinces and a political solution to the consent of the Tamils.
Newspapers quoted recently TNA leader R. Sampandan as saying that the party would not accept government ministry portfolios until a federal system is introduced to solve the crisis in the North.
