By: Isuru Parakrama

Colombo (LNW): The hearing of the writ petition demanding the postponement of the Local Government Election in response to the ongoing economic crisis may not be needed for expedition, the lawyer appearing for the petitioner has informed the Supreme Court today (20).

He further noted that a motion was filed to expedite the hearing, which was scheduled to be held on February 23, due to the planned postal voting of the LG Polls scheduled for February 22, 23 and 24, adding that any further move in this regard may not be necessary given that the postal voting has been postponed.

Accordingly, the petition challenging the holding of the LG Polls will be taken up before the Supreme Court on February 23 as earlier declared.
