A former member of the Human Rights Commission of Sri Lanka (HRCSL), Ambika Satkunanathan says she has not yet decided on contesting at the upcoming Parliamentary election.

Satkunanathan has been offered nominations by the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) to contest the election.

She says she is committed to making a contribution to the country.

Satkunanathan said that she tendered her resignation to President Gotabaya Rajapaksa on 26 February and resigned with effect from 7 March 2020.

She asserted that she had carefully considered her decision to resign for over six months and it was not linked to the recent developments in the country. (Colombo Gazette)
