After Polls Battle: TNA Chief Minister Elect Wigneswaran Meets Northern Governor

Following a bitterly contested election in which the TNA made the removal of the military Governor of the North a major battle cry, Northern Chief Minister designate Justice C.V. Wigneswaran met with Governor Maj. Gen. (Rtd) G.A. Chandrasiri in Jaffna.

The TNA delegation discussed the appointment of the Chief Minister elect by the Governor and a venue for the recently elected council to meet.

TNA sources said an assembly hall in Kaittady was being prepared for the Northern Provincial Council to meet.

The Northern Governor is likely to issue the letter appointing Justice Wigneswaran as Chief Minister tomorrow, the sources said.

The TNA has repeatedly called for the replacement of the military governor Chandrasiri with a civilian. During the electoral contest, the TNA also accused the Governor of openly backing the ruling UPFA.

But the meeting in Jaffna between the TNA and the Governor had been civil, the sources said.
