TNPF makes significant gains amid TNA win in North

The Tamil National People's Front made significant gains in local government polls in the North, particularly in the Jaffna district, while the Tamil National Alliance held most of its wards across the province.

Running under the All Ceylon Tamil Congress, TNPF won the most seats for Jaffna's two largest urban councils Point Pedro and Chavakachcheri.

While the TNA, under Ilankai Tamil Arasu Kachchi, kept hold of the Jaffna Municipal Council with 16 seats, the ACTC came a close second with 13 seats.
