It is reported that 2 candidates are vying for the chief ministerial post for the Northern provincial council election from the TNA.

 

The 2 candidates are MP Mavai Senadiraja and a former Judge C V Wickneshwara.

 

Although a meeting was held to select a candidate yesterday the TNA was unable to select a candidate.

 

19 out of the 21 coordination committee members are in favour of MP Mavai Senadiraja but Party Leader R Sambanthan and MP Sumandiran vehemently opposed it.

 

Hence the coordination committee of the TNA is scheduled convene once again today to take a final decision regarding the chief ministerial candidate.

 

Sri Lanka Mulism Congress states that they are in a position to take an independent decision regarding the provincial council elections.

 

National organiser of the SLMC Shafeek Rajabdeen speaking to our news team had this to say.....
