Rajapakse’s Petition Dismissed

The Court of Appeal rejected today the petition filed by Shasheendra Rajapaksa which stated that the removal of him from his position as the Chief Minister was illegal.  

The petition was rejected after concluding that it contained flaws.

The petition was heard today before the judges Wijith Malalgoda and H.P.J. Madawala of the Court of Appeal.

Former Chief Minister Shasheendra Rajapaksa filed the petition after stating that the appointment of the incumbent Chief Minister of Uva Provincial council Hareen Fernando was illegal and against people’s expectations.

A group of persons including the Uva provincial Governor were named as the respondents of the case.

Following the power change of the presidential election, a group of UPFA councilors submitted affidavits to the governor, stating that then opposition leader of the provincial council Hareen Fernando should be appointed as the Chief Minister.

After the submission of the affidavits, the number of seats in the opposition increased, therefore the governor appointed Hareen Fernando as the Chief Minister.
