The wife of former LTTE Trincomalee District political head Elilan, has been included in the list of candidates by the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) for the Northern Provincial Council elections.
The TNA confirmed its list for the Jaffna District in the Northern elections and Mrs Elilan, real name Ananthi Sasitharan, has been included in the list.
The TNA Jaffna candidates for the elections signed their nomination papers today.
