Justice H. Nalin Jayalath Perera was sworn in as new Chief Justice of Sri Lanka by President Maithripala Sirisena last evening.

New Chief Justice Perera is a career judicial officer from being a Magistrate, High Court Judge and a Justice of the Court of Appeal before being elevated to the Supreme Court (SC) by President Sirisena in March 2016.

The newly reconstituted Constitutional Council (CC) yesterday (12), considered President Maithripala Sirisena’s nomination for Chief Justice, and recommended Justice Perera for the post.

Former CJ Dep’s retirement and new CJ Perera’s appointment leaves one vacancy in the SC.
