TNA leader R. Sampanthan asked President Mahinda Rajapaksa to appoint a civilian as Governor of the Northern and Eastern provinces. TNA leader met the president this morning at the Presidents House to discuss the issues related to Eastern elections.
Responding to Smapnathan’s request Rajapaksa asked Sampanthan to attend the Parliamentary Select Committee and raised the matter. Sambanthan responded by stating that the TNA has never taken up the position that it will not attend the PSC, but has only insisted that commitments made must be implemented before attending the Parliamentary Select Committee sessions.
