Court To Take Up Petition Against Gazette On Local Government Elections Delimitation On November 22

The Court of Appeal is to take up for consideration the petition filed against the Gazette on Local Government delimitation on November 22.

The petition, filed by six citizens - residents of Colombo, Kandy, Hali-Ela, Matara and Embilipitiya – was taken up today.

The petitioners’ claim the Gazette was issued without taking into consideration the recommendations made by the sub-committee appointed to oversee the demarcation process.

They are asking that the Gazette notification be declared void.

A three-judge bench comprising Justices L. Dehideniya, Shiran Gunaratne and Kumudini Wickramasinghe  took up the case.
