TNA will not seek redress from courts over post of opposition leader

The Tamil National Alliance will not seek redress from courts over the post of opposition leader sources within the party said. The party was in a tussle over the post with UPFA MP Mahinda Rajapaksa who was named by the Speaker as Opposition Leader on December 18 despite objections. 
The TNA maintained that its leader R. Sampanthan remained as Opposition leader as Rajapaksa had obtained the membership of the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna, a party that did not contest the last General Election, thereby cancelling his parliamentary membership according to the constitution. 
However, TNA sources say they believe another party or individual may file a case against the appointment of Rajapaksa as opposition leader in the coming days.
