All Diplomatic Units will reportedly be visiting the Supreme Court tomorrow.
Several parties including the United National Party and the JVP in opposing the measures taken to dissolve the Parliament reaching beyond the Constitution by President Maithreepala Sirisena will be signing a petition before the Supreme Court tomorrow (12).
Accordingly, it is reported that all Diplomatic Units will be heading to the Supreme Court in observing the procedure.
The Diplomatic Units and the International Community have paid much attention due to allegations that the President has appointed Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa as the new Prime Minister. Parallely, the International had also expressed their displeasure towards the decision to prorogue the Parliament till November 16, while several powerful bodies including the European Union emphasized to respect democracy and immediately reconvene the Parliament to solve the crisis.
During the discussions carried between the embassy officials and the President, the President had said that they would immediately convene the Parliament to settle the issue with the majority.
However, even when the majority was at the Government, things got jumbled even worse as the Parliament was dissolved, and the International had emphasized that they will continue to stand on focus about the frequent political changes emerge in Sri Lanka.
Responding to this political embarrassment, there are warnings that could lead to serious disadvantages, such as loss of GSP reliefs.
Meanwhile, President of the Election Commission Mahinda Deshapriya had stated that in order of conducting the elections, the Supreme Court’s decision is a necessity.
Accordingly, the problem will brought before the Supreme Court tomorrow, and the diplomats have expressed their confidence in receiving a proper demonstration regarding the constitutional grants.
