The Supreme Court ordered today neither to remove the current Pradeshiya Sabha Chairmen from their posts nor to replace the positions until the 31st of March.

Having considered a fundamental case filed by 8 Pradeshiya Sabha chairmen, a panel of 3 Supreme Court Judges ordered to continue the proceedings of these Pradeshiya Sabhas as usual.

The petitioners are Chairmen of Homagama, Hingurakkgoda, Hanguranketha, Imbulpe, Kesbewa, Damana, Matara and Bulathsinhala Pradeshiya Sabhas.

They were compelled to resign from their posts after their budgets for the year 2014 were defeated twice recently.

Positions of Kesbewa, Matara and Bulathsinhala have already been replaced with new members and these 3 chairmen also can remain in their positions under the new ruling given by Supreme Court Judges Chandra Ekanayake, Sathya Hettige and Rohini Marasinghe today.

The Supreme Court also ordered the respondents of this case namely secretaries and commissioners of local governments, the Election Commissioner and local government members to present their submissions on the 31st of March.

All 8 petitioners were present in Court today and Chairman of the Hingurakkgoda Pradeshiya Sabha Susantha Gnanarathna expressed his views on the court ruling.
