Many in Tamil National Alliance compete with each other to contest from Ampara

In the forthcoming parliamentary election, many politicians are competing with each other to contest from Amparai district on behalf of Tamil National Alliance. There will be ten candidates who will submit to contest for the seven seats in Ampara district.

News resources from the party says that the constituent parties in TNA have reached for an amicable settlement for number of candidates that are going to contest. Federal party is allotted 5 seats, RELO and EPRLF parties are allotted 2 seats each and PLOTE party has been allotted 1 seat.

It is being reported that from Federal party, Former Eastern province Health Services Director Dr. Mayilvahanam Devarajan is planning to contest. Others are Akkaraipatru former chairman S.

On behalf of EPRLF, former Ampara district parliament member Gunasekaram Sankar from Pothuvil and Lawyer M. Jeganathan from Thambilivil are planning to contest. It seems that from PLOTE, no name has been decided yet. Many people specified here are possible to be nominated. In some cases, some other person can be changed as a contestant.

The situation is that if the Eastern Provincial council member T. Kalaiarasan has to contest, he has to resign from Eastern Provincial council as member as per the resolution passed by the party. It seems that he is thinking on this matter to decide.

Many also went to Thirumalai to meet their leader Mavai Senathirajah for seat, but it seems that he told them to join the party and do service after which their seats can be considered. There is no clarity on who is contesting from an important Tamil village of the district, Karaithivu. It is being said that sometimes no one will be put there to contest. Overall in a week, authentic confirmed information will be released.
