    TNA should support any presidential candidate who acknowledges that war crimes have been committed and agree to have international war crime investigation. If not TNA is working for their personal benefits in exchange for their support.

    Under the prevailing context of Political landscape in SL, to win presidential elections, the winner MUST obtain the vote of majority Tamils and Muslims !!!period!!

    Mirror paper is deliberately stifling comments against the UNP and India.

    UNP cannot survive without TNA, Muslim, JVP. United National party also came in to power thanks to Maithree and he and SLFP is not there this time so UNP will not be successful at all even if Sajith or Ranil contest along with Boru show Karu

    The next presidential election will be decided by the minority and the millennials. So it will be TNA / Muslim congress

    In case of TNA it is easy. Agree to federalize the country and you have their support.

    It is very clear Ranil is taking Sajith for a ride. Sajith and his loyalists should cross over.
