A fundamental rights petition was filed in the Supreme Court yesterday challenging President Maithripala Sirisena’s decision to increase the number of cabinet ministers from 30 to 48.

The petition was filed by Attorney-at-Law Aruna Laksiri and he has cited President Sirisena and the Attorney General as respondents.

The petitioners stated that the national government must consist of the party who earned the maximum number of seats and other parties including independent groups according to the 19th amendment of the Constitution.

The petitioner points out that the current government which has been formed through the agreement of a mere few parties cannot be considered a national government.

Accordingly the petitioner claims that it is against the law to increase of number of cabinet Ministers above 30. On this ground the petitioner requested the Supreme Court to impose an interim ban to prevent the appointment of more than 30 ministers.
