The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) is to call for a meeting to finalize a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the TNA coalition parties prior to the next election.

TNA PM Suresh Premachandran told The Sunday Leader that the TNA was expected to hold a meeting last Friday to discuss the draft of the MOU but was postponed as Leader of the Illangai Thamil Arasu Katchi (ITAK) Mavai Senathirajah is out of the country. “We have already distributed the draft of the MOU but we have not made any decision related to that.
