TNA to back UNP

The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) will support the United National Party (UNP), which has emerged as the single largest party in Monday’s Parliament election in Sri Lanka.

“In the process, we also expect resolution to the national question in a manner acceptable to all people,” TNA leader R. Sampanthan told The Hindu. The verdict of people in the Northern and Eastern Provinces had demonstrated “beyond question” that the TNA was “the true representative of Tamils.”
