It is reported that plans are underway to register the Tamil National Alliance under a new leader owing to internal conflicts within the party concerning its registration.

 

However the Illangai Thamil Arusu Katchchi, a constituent party of the TNA headed by its leader R. Sambanthan remains opposed to the notion.

 

The rest of the TNA constituents which comprise the TELO, EPRLF, PLOT & the TULF are in favor of the notion, and are poised to go ahead with the re-registration of the TNA under a new leader.

 

A senior leader of TELO M.K. Siwajilingam speaking to our news team meanwhile expressed the following views in this regard.
