Dissolution Invalid: Supreme Court Issues Historic Order Allowing Parliament To Meet Tomorrow
Published Date: 13/11/2018 (Tuesday)

In a landmark order, the tripartite bench consisting Chief Justice Nalin Perera, Justice Prasanna Jayawardena and Justice Priyantha Jayawardena stayed both Gazette notifications issued by President Maithripala Sirisena proroguing and dissolving Parliament.

The Gazette dissolving Parliament was stayed till the 7th December while the case was fixed for argument on the 5th, 6th and 7th December.

Meanwhile, the Gazette convening Parliament on November 14 will stand active, which means Parliament could be convened tomorrow.

The three-judge bench gave the order after considering submissions made by all petitioners and intervening petitioners on the President’s decision to prematurely dissolve Parliament, despite strong constitutional barriers imposed by the 19th Amendment to the constitution.

The Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) Parliamentarians also met Speaker Karu Jayasuriya, soon after the order was issued, urging him to convene Parliament as soon as possible.

More stories loaded.Speaking to media from the Hulftsdorp courts presses, UNP Deputy Leader Sajith Premadasa said Parliament could convene even tomorrow. He requested all UNPers to refrain from resorting to violence and maintain law and order. Meanwhile, informed sources told Colombo Telegraph that Speaker Karu Jayasuriya is currently preparing a statement on convening Parliament tomorrow.

UNP Leader and “ousted” Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe informed his Parliamentarians that he was ready to show his Parliamentary majority at any time. He also told them to “get ready” to attend Parliament tomorrow.

Commenting on the order, UPFA Parliamentarian Namal Rajapaksa said, “SupremeCourt has issued an interim order. This is not the Court’s final decision. I have never seen politicians get so excited for postponing elections. The UNP have a history of postponing polls but eventually voters will decide.”
