Senathirajah Jeyanandamoorthy is a Sri Lankan Tamil politician and former Member of Parliament.

In 2004 Jeyanandamoorthy was selected by the Tamil Tigers as a Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentary candidate.[1] Jeyanandamoorthy represented the Batticaloa 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 Jeyanandamoorthy. Jeyanandamoorthy has fled to the United Kingdom after threats from the Sri Lankan government backed Tamil Makkal Viduthalai Pulikal paramilitary.[2]

In May 2010 Jeyanandamoorthy was elected to the Transnational Constituent Assembly of Tamil Eelam.[3]
