The Court of Appeal has issued an injunction order preventing on the Local Government Elections from being held held in Akmeemana, Akuressa and Moneragala Pradeshiya Sabhas.
The UPFA filed petitions against the rejection of nominations in Moneragala and Akmemana Pradeshiya Sabhas. The petition against the rejection of nominations for the Akuressa Pradeshiya Sabha was filed by an independent group. The Appeals Court issued the order after taking up the petitions for hearing. The injunction orders will remain in force while the petitions are being heard. The UPFA nominations were rejected for not duly making the pledge for presenting candidates who were more than 35 years of age.
