Pathmini Sithamparanathan is a Sri Lankan Tamil politician and former Member of Parliament.

In 2004 Pathmini was selected by the Tamil Tigers as a Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentary candidate.[1] Pathmini represented the Jaffna multi-member electoral district for the TNA in the Sri Lankan Parliament between April 2004 and February 2010.

In 2010, after the Tamil Tigers' defeat in the civil war, the TNA deselected most of its Tamil Tiger appointed MPs, including Pathmini.[2] She subsequently joined the newly formed Tamil National People's Front (TNPF) and stood as one of its candidates in Jaffna District in the 2010 parliamentary election. The TNPF failed to win any seats in Parliament.
