[TamilNet, Tuesday, 25 November 2014, 12:15 GMT]
The parliamentary group of the Tamil National Alliance after about two hour discussion held at parliamentary complex on Monday evening decided not to take any hasty decision on the forthcoming Presidential election immediately. TNA Parliamentary Group Leader and Trincomalee district parliamentarian Mr R. Sampanthan presided the meeting.

Mr.Sampanthan thereafter told media persons that all TNA parliamentarians were present at the meeting.

“We discussed in length to whom to support at the forthcoming presidential election at various levels. But no decision has been taken to support any candidate at the forthcoming presidential election,” he said.

“We have decided to first find out the opinion of the Tamil people, Tamil intelligentsia and the Tamil civil society. We have enough time to take final decision in this regard as the Presidential election is scheduled to be held on January 8 next year and the nomination is to close on December 8 this year. Hence hasty decision will not take place. Till then we will conduct discussion among us”, Mr.Sampanthan told media persons in Colombo.
