Sampanthan tipped to be Opposition Leader

Speculation is high that Tamil National Alliance Leader Rajavarothayam Sampanthan could be the opposition leader. Since Sri Lanka Freedom Party has joined the national government, there is clamour that Nimal Siripala cannot continue to be opposition leader. In such a situation, it is Tamil National Alliance Leader Samapanthan who could hold that office for TNA has the necessary number of seats.
