TNA urges Sri Lanka Elections Commission to ban TNLA

The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) has urged Sri Lanka Elections Commission to ban its splinter group, the Tamil National Liberation Alliance (TNLA).

In a letter addressed to Sri Lanka Elections Commission, K.Thurairajasingham, the General Secretary of the TNA has claimed that the TNLA is causing confusion amongst the voters by using a name that closely resembles their alliance’s name.

Commenting on the development, Suresh Premachandran, the spokesman of the TNLA, said his alliance would legally contest any efforts by Sri Lanka Elections Commission to ban the party.
