Three Tamil political parties, civil society groups form an alliance

The TULF, EPRLF and the Rehabilitated Liberation Tigers of Tamils (RLTT) and civil society groups have formed an alliance to contest the local elections.

Calling themselves the Tamil Liberation Alliance (TLA), the parties announced at a press conference held in Jaffna today that they would be contesting under the TULF’s rising sun symbol.


Earlier, talks between the EPRLF and the TNPF on forming a political front collapsed after the former sought to bring the TULF in to the alliance and contest under its rising sun symbol.
