The TNPF’s leader’s position is in sharp contrast to the leader of the Tamil Makkal Thesiya Kuttani (TMTK) party, retired Supreme Court Justice C.V. Wigneswaran, who has publicly announced his intention to participate in the upcoming presidential election.Wigeneswaran warns that an election boycott will be detrimental to the interest of the Tamils
