The Supreme Court rejected to grant leave to proceed with a fundamental rights petition filed with the Supreme Court, citing that political parties representing communal or religious backgrounds should be banned.

The petition was filed by President Counsel Prashantha Lal de Alwis on the 22nd of September last year.

The Election Commissioner and General Secretaries of political parties representing communal or religious backgrounds were mentioned as respondents.

TNA MP M.A. Sumandiran, Ceylon Workers Congress, and the Attorney General also submitted facts against the petition yesterday (01).
