The Supreme Court (SC) decided to postpone for the day after tomorrow the petition that was filed against to nullify the Appointment of Minister Sarath Fonseka as a United National Party (UNP) Parliamentarian.

The petition, which was filed by the former Southern Provincial member Attorney-At-Law Ajith Prassana was inquired today.

The petitioner argued that Fonseka was not a candidate of the UNP and therefore it violated the people's franchise rights to appoint him as a MP of the party.

Seven persons including Fonseka, UNP General Secretary Kabir Hashim, Elections Commissioner Mahinda Deshapriya and General Secretary of the Parliament are among the respondents of the case.
