TNA constituent parties to register as separate units

Constituent parties in Tamil National Alliance are likely to register as separate parties with the Elections Commission and function independently from TNA.

EPRLF, TELO and PLOTE are the three parties that propose to do so and contest under a different banner for the local government polls, reports say. They charge that Illankai Tamil Arasu Katchi is trying to be dominant in the alliance and deny the constituent parties of their due share.
