Different opinions are voiced amid the community nowadays regarding the appointment of the Opposition Leader from the TNA. This is also the second time the Opposition Leadership is offered to a Tamil political party. A letter was submitted to the President requesting the post of Opposition Leader by a group of ministers from the SLFP- the partnership party of the UNP and the UPFA. The UPFA General Secretary has informed the Speaker that he does not expect the post of Opposition Leader.

However through Janatha Handa we are investigating whether it is a step for national reconciliation.
