He con­tested the 2013 elec­tions under the ban­ner of the ITAK-LED Tamil Na­tional Alliance (TNA) though how­ever, he fell out with the ITAK lead­ers later. The source said the chief min­is­ter would form a new party and move for a broad po­lit­i­cal alliance as an al­ter­na­tive to the TNA to con­test the elec­tions. The TNA lead­ers are on record say­ing the TNA would not nom­i­nate Mr. Wigneswaran. When asked about the lat­est po­lit­i­cal de­vel­op­ment, Ee­lam Peo­ple’s Rev­o­lu­tion­ary Lib­er­a­tion Front (EPRLF) Leader Suresh Premachan­dran said the chief min­is­ter had ex­pressed his in­ter­est in form­ing a united po­lit­i­cal front as he was not pleased with TNA poli­cies.

When asked whether the EPRLF would join hands with him, he said, it would de­pend on how the Chief Min­is­ter played his cards.
