TNA wins Jaffna, Vanni, Batticaloa

[TamilNet, Thursday, 06 December 2001, 02:13 GMT]
The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) won in the Jaffna, Vanni and Batticaloa electoral districts, according to results announced until Thursday morning. It came second in the Trincomalee district. Election officials said, according to the votes counted so far TNA would get six seats in Jaffna, four in the Vanni and three in Batticaloa.

According to the votes counted so far, the TNA would get a seat in the Trincomalee and another in the Ampara (Digamadulla) electoral district, they said.

"We would get a total of 15 seats in the north and east and a national list seat when the all the votes we polled are added", a spokesman for the TNA said.

He said that the TNA was denied the fourth seat in Batticaloa because the Sri Lanka army fraudulently barred more than seventy thousands voters in the district from casting their ballot and the fifth seat in the Vanni for the same reason.

The EPDP got two seats in Jaffna and UNP one.
