An appeal petition filed by Opposition Leader Mahinda Rajapaksa and other former Cabinet Ministers against the interim injunction order issued by the Appeal Court preventing the Prime Minister and the Cabinet from carrying out their tasks was withdrawn at the Supreme Court today.

The Lawyer representing Opposition Leader Mahinda Rajapaksa’s faction informed the Supreme Court that as a result of the respondents of this petition, withdrawing the Writ Ordinance Petition filed by them at the Court yesterday, the Plaintiff’s faction was withdrawing the Appeal Petition.

This petition was filed by the Opposition Leader and the former Cabinet Ministers on 3 December last year stating that the interim injunction order issued by the Appeal Court preventing Opposition Leader Mahinda Rajapaksa as serving as the Prime Minister was against legal provisions and therefore it should be rejected.
