Constitutional Council delays decision on AG’s tenure extension

June 11, Colombo (LNW): The Constitutional Council has delayed granting approval for the President’s recommendation to extend Attorney General Sanjay Rajaratnam’s tenure by six months.

This decision was made after a council meeting held yesterday (10), where it was decided to postpone the discussion for further consideration.

Rajaratnam’s current term is due to end at the close of this month, and the President had suggested prolonging it for an additional six months.

However, the proposal necessitates approval from the Constitutional Council, which has been postponed.

Speaker Mahinda Yapa Abeywardana has confirmed that the Constitutional Council is slated to reconvene on the 18th of this month.

It is anticipated that a final decision regarding the extension of Attorney General Rajaratnam’s service will be made during this session.
