Petition seeks revocation of UPFA National List MPs appointments

September 2, 2015   05:15 pm

A petition has been filed at the Supreme Court requesting to revoke the appointments of the UPFA MPs who got elected to the Parliament through the National List, Ada Derana Court reporter says.

The petition was filed by Secretary of the Communist Party D. E. W. Gunasekera on Wednesday (2) morning.

The respondents for the case include the Election Commissioner, General Secretary of the UPFA and 42 other, the reporter added.

The petition argued that the UPFA’s decision to include the candidates who were defeated at the General Election 2015 was against the law and it is against the sovereignty of the people.
