Three petitions filed seeking dismissal of writ against LG elections

 

Three intervention petitions have been filed in the Supreme Court seeking the dismissal of a writ petition filed by Army Colonel (Retired), W.M.R.Wijesundara who has sought a court order to be issued to the Elections Commission, suspending the conducting of the local government elections.


The three petitions have been filed by a member of the executive committee of National People’s Power (NPP), Attorney-at-Law Sunil Watagala, National Organiser of the Socialist Youth Union (SYU), Eranga Gunasekara and Senior Lecturer of the Law Faculty of Colombo University, Dr.Visakesa Chandrasekaram.


The petitioners point out that a retired Army Colonel has filed a petition before the Supreme Court claiming that the holding of Local Government elections is inappropriate at the moment, since there is a serious economic crisis within the country presently.
