Sri Lanka's major Tamil alliance to have a supreme council

Sri Lanka's major Tamil coalition Tamil National Alliance (TNA) has decided to form a supreme council as the governing body of the party.

TNA is not a registered political party yet. It was formed as a coalition of several Tamil political organizations in 2004 under the influence of the Tamil Tiger rebels. However, the party seems independent now as the remnants of the Tamil Tiger elements failed to elect in 2004.

It is under pressure to register as a political party despite the major party of the alliance Ilankai Thamil Arasu Kachchi (ITAK) held its 14th annual convention recently expressing determination to exist as a separate entity. ITAK belongs to the major Tamil political stream that origins from Tamil United Liberation Front (TULF), a party name of which the ownership was claimed by lone pro-government politician Ananda Sangaree.

At a meeting of the leaders of the TNA held in Colombo  on June 01, the party leaders of the TNA agreed to have further discussions on the composition of the supreme council.
