Muslim Chief Minister should be appointed to the East: Demands Muslim Congress

Muslim Congress had called for the Muslim community Chief Minister should continue to be in the chair. TNA should act in this matter with a compromising attitude said Eastern Provincial Council Member and SLMC group leader A.M Jemil said.

But TNA seems to consider that it is the democratic tradition for the TNA which holds highest number of seats (11) be given the CM post. Muslim Congress holds 7 seats and the UNP 4 seats in the Eastern PC.
