The Supreme Court decided today to consider the petition filed by former MP, retired rear admiral Sarath Weerasekera on December 4th.

The petition cites that the speaker’s decision to reconvene parliament is illegal.

The petition was taken before chief justice Nalin Perera and justice LTB Dehideniya.

Weerasekera’s petition has named the speaker, the Attorney General and the parliament secretary general as respondents.

Having considered several petitions filed against the dissolution of parliament, the Supreme Court issued an interim injunction on the relevant gazette to dissolve parliament.

Retired Rear admiral Weerasekera challenged that the speaker’s action to convene parliament is contravened to the constitution accordingly.

Later, the Supreme Court decided to hear the Weerasekera petition as well along with the other petitions on December 4, 5 and 6th.
