Appeal Court sets aside 3 petitions

Mar 14, 2011 11:39:48 AM - itnnews.lk

The Appeal Court has set aside three petitions filed against the rejection of nominations.



One petition was filed by the UNP for the Eravur Pradeshiya Sabha while another was filed by the Lanka Sama Samaja Party for the Kuchchaweli Pradeshiya Sabha. Another was filed by an independent group for the Kantale Pradeshiya Sabha. The political parties and the independent group had requested the Appeal Court to order the Election Commissioner to reaccept the nominations as the rejection was in violation of the Election Law. After a detailed examination of the submissions, the Appeal Court has set aside the petitions.
