Paris-Pondi municipal election: Eelam Tamil woman elected

PARIS – Right-wing La Republican candidate Stephen Herve has won the mayoral election in Pondicherry.

It has been reported that Premi Prabhakaran, an Eelam Tamil woman who was one of the contestants in her party list on behalf of the Pondy Tamil people, has been elected as a member of the council.

Diaspora Tamils, many living in the city, including the Seine-Saint-Denis Regional Bondi, have contested many of the Eelam-backed seats for membership. But most of them did not succeed.
