The hearing of the Quo Warrantor field by the Opposition challenging the government commenced for the second day today.

The petition has been taken before the chairman of the court of appeal, Prithi Padman Surasena and Justice Arjun Obeysekera.

The Quo Warrantor Writ was filed to challenge that the current Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa and his cabinet do not have the authority to hold those offices.

 122 MPs including former prime minister, Ranil Wickremesinghe filed the Quo Warrantor on November 23.

Meanwhile, the association of secretaries of ministries filed a complaint with the Keselwatta police this morning.

In the complaint, the association has requested the court prevent illegal assemblies of individual groups and political party supporters within the Supreme Court premises during the hearing of the petitions against the dissolution of the power of the president.
