Early life[edit]

Career[edit]

Sithamparanathan was selected by the militant Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) to be one of the Tamil National Alliance's (TNA) candidates in Jaffna District at the 2004 parliamentary election.[2] She was elected and entered Parliament.[3] In March 2010 Sithamparanathan, along with fellow TNA MPs Gajendrakumar Ponnambalam and S.

Sithamparanathan contested the 2010 parliamentary election as one of the TNPF's candidates in Jaffna District but the TNPF failed to win any seats in Parliament.[6][7] In February 2011 Sithamparanathan became one of the vice-presidents of the TNPF.[8] She contested the 2015 parliamentary election as one of the TNPF's candidates in Jaffna District but again the TNPF failed to win any seats in Parliament.[9][10]
