The Tamil National Alliance (TNA), at a press briefing a short while ago, confirmed that the party has reached a unanimous decision to extend support to General Sarath Fonseka at the forthcoming Presidential elections. 

TNA leader R. Sampanthan said that following talks with Fonseka and incumbent President Mahinda Rajapaksa the party was of the opinion it could not support President Rajapaksa at the polls considering his past performance as a President and called on the Tamil community to support Fonseka for Presidency.

Sampanthan said that General Fonseka understands the need for an acceptable solution to the Tamil issue far better that President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

He also noted that General Fonseka was not in the military anymore and so the TNA was not supporting a “military official” for the Presidency.

The TNA leader also said that his party, during talks with President Rajapaksa, had impressed upon the need to remove all the high security zones in the north but did not receive a favorable response to that point.

He also said there was no "agreement" signed with General Fonseka. (DM Online)
