ITAK MP M.A.Sumanthiran said yesterday that the Central Committee of Ilankai Tamil Arasuk Kadchchi (ITAK) had unanimously decided to support Sajith Premadasa in the Presidential Election.
He announced this in a media conference after the Central Committee meeting of the ITAK held in Vavuniya.
TNA President Sampanthan and ITAK Leader Mawai Senathyrasa participated in the Central committee meeting.
Although the Central Committee had taken this decision, as the ITAK is a member of the TNA, the responsibility of announcing this decision in conjunction with the other two parties of TNA, has been handed over to Sampanthan Aiya, he said.
The manifestos of main candidates were studied and it was decided support Sajith, as this would be a useful act for the interest of the Tamil People.
