Justice declines to hear writ petition against Ranil

Court of Appeal (Acting President) Justice Deepali Wijesundera today declined to sit on the Bench regarding a writ petition filed challenging UNP leader Ranil Wickremasinghe's parliamentary seat.

Therefore, the petition was differed for tomorrow to fix for a support date.

This petition had sought an order in the nature of a writ of quo warranto declaring that UNP leader Ranil Wickremasinghe is disqualified to be a Member of Parliament and thus the appointment of Ranil Wickremasinghe as a member of Parliament void and that he has no right to continue to hold office as a member of Parliament.
