Tamil National Alliance Leader R.Sampanthan and Chief Minister of the Northern Province Justice Wigneswaran met at the Chief Minister’s Office in Jaffna on Saturday, August 5 and held talks to sort out issues that have arisen in the administration of the Northern Provincial Council.
It has been agreed that the Chief of the Northern Provincial Council shall exercise the discretionary power vested on him and appoint ministers. Such appointment of new ministers would not be construed that the outgoing ministers are corrupt.
It was also decided that the opinions of constituent parties in the TNA must also be taken into account when new provincial ministers are appointed.
Illankai Tamil Arasu Katchi Leader Mavai Senathyrasa, TELO Leader Selvam Addaikalanthan, PLOTE Leader D.Sitharthan and EPRLF Leader Suresh Premachandran were present during the discussions.
