Prez. candidate Sivajilingam resigns from TELO

Former TNA Parliamentarian and Northern Provincial Councillor M.K. Sivajilingam has resigned from the TNA and the Tamil Eelam Liberation Organization (TELO) following a dispute over his candidacy at the Presidential Election 2019, he said in a letter to TELO.

In his letter to TELO Secretary N Srikantha yesterday, Sivajilingam said that he decided to resign over the party’s decision to take disciplinary action against him for contesting the Presidential Election.

The TELO commenced a disciplinary inquiry against Sivajilingam soon after nominations, but Sivajilingam requested time to show cause.

Sivajilingam is contesting the Presidential Election as an independent candidate.

He resigned from his post as the Chairman of TELO after handing over his nomination.

TELO had previously informed Sivajilingam that it would take disciplinary action if he fails to withdraw his nomination from the Presidential race before November 3.

Sivajilingam will automatically lose the TNA membership after resigning from the TELO.
