November 03, 2019

The Illankai Thamil Arasu Katchi (ITAK), the largest constituent party in the TNA coalition, announced that they would pledge support to New Democratic Front (NDF) Presidential candidate Sajith Premadasa.

Addressing a press conference in Vavuniya, MP M.A. Sumanthiran said the 13 conditions put forward by Tamil political parties had no bearing on the party's decision.

Sumanthiran also clarified that the party did not even discuss such conditions with Premadasa.

The Parliamentarian said ITAK Leader R. Sampanthan would discuss the matter with other political parties in the TNA coalition and seek to draw their support to Premadasa's campaign.
