The Appeals Court has decided to take up for hearing on the 23rd of this month the petitions filed by the United People’s Freedom Alliance against the rejection of nominations for 19 Pradeshiya Sabhas in the Jaffna and Kilinochchi Districts and the Yatinuwara Pradeshiya Sabha.
The Court announced that the ruling related to petitions against the rejection of nominations for the Ukuwela and Kuchchaveli Pradeshiya Sabhas will be given on the 8th of this month. Petitions were filed by the Sri Lanka Muslim Congress and the Lanka Samasamaja Party. These were rejected on the grounds that an authorized person had not handed in the nominations. Meanwhile, it has also been decided to take up the petition filed by an Independent Group over the rejection of nominations for the Kantale Pradeshiya Sabha on the 22nd of this month.
