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. Kajendran, left the TNA and formed the Tamil National People's Front (TNPF).[4][5]

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]
