A Quo Warranto Writ petition filed against former Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa was withdrawn by the petitioners today.
The petition was filed by United National Party leader Ranil Wickremesinghe and 121 Parliamentarians.
The writ petition was filed against Rajapaksa and 48 others from holding office as Prime Minister and the Cabinet.
The petition was filed during the political coup last year but was withdrawn today since the coup had ended. (Colombo Gazette)
