TNA scores high in Batticaloa

[TamilNet, Saturday, 03 April 2004, 00:30 GMT]
The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) is leading by a massive majority in the Batticaloa district, sources at the elections secretariat in the eastern town said. In the 16 counting centres at the secretariat where votes have been sorted, the TNA has polled 121000 votes. Although voter turnout in Tamil areas of Batticaloa was reported low until early afternoon Friday, it surged later in the day to average at 83.58 percent, the highest polling rate in the northeast in this election.

Officials said that it is now probable that the TNA might get four out of the five Parliamentary seats of the district.

The Sri Lanka Muslim Congress has scored close to thirty thousand votes and has come second, according to sources at the Vote Counting Centre in the Hindu College in Batticaloa.
