Geetha’s Parliament seat abolished following court order

The Parliament seat of Geetha Kumarasinghe has been abolished as a result of a recent court order.

The Secretary General of Parliament has informed the Elections Commissioner of the decision.

The Court of Appeal last week ruled that Geetha Kumarasinghe is not suitable to have a seat in Parliament.

The ruling was based on her dual citizenship.

Kumarasinghe filed an appeal in the Supreme Court against the move. (Colombo Gazette)
