BASL postpones elections over dispute on judge

The BAR Association has postponed the elections scheduled to be held tomorrow owing to a dispute on the appointment of a High Court judge.

The dispute arose over the appointment of Ramanathan Kannan of a private bar as a High Court judge.

The Judicial Service Association of Sri Lanka had claimed that President Maithripala Sirisena had given the attorney a direct appointment as a High Court Judge, which it said was a violation of the Constitution and judicial service tradition. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. Nothing is a violation according to the constitution. President’s power cannot be challenged. All these associations have all of a sudden awaken,just because Maithri is in Power. For some People and some association everything Maithiri does is wrong. These People must change their mindset. It is better to give a profile about Kannan and his connections so that people will know the true position.
