The post of Leader of the Opposition should be given to TNA leader R. Sambandan, Tamil Progressive Alliance leader Mano Ganesan says.

“It will definitely bode well for the country’s political atmosphere,” Ganesan added.

He said that the TNA would also get an opportunity to be a part of national politics with R. Sambandan be elected as the Opposition leader.

Earlier, the Ilankai Thamil Arasu Kadchi (ITAK) in a statement said “It has been announced that a National Government has been formed and that Members of Parliament who contested and were elected under both the UNP and the UPFA have accepted cabinet portfolios. Accordingly, both the UNP and the UPFA bear collective cabinet responsibility. As political parties in Parliament, they thus must publicly support all Governmental decisions made in Cabinet. This support includes voting with the Government when sitting in Parliament. In these circumstances, the ITAK which obtained a total of 16 seats, has emerged as the largest political party in Opposition.”
