Attorney General to study delimitation gazette

Attorney General Jayantha Jayasuriya PC yesterday appointed a three-member committee comprising Senior State Counsel to look into all legal aspects pertaining to the Delimitation Gazette Notification.

The Gazette Notification was issued by the Provincial Councils and Local Government Minister on the Delimitation Committee Report with regard to the boundaries in respect of Local Authorities.

The Court of Appeal last Wednesday issued an Interim Order suspending the operation of the Gazette Notification dated February 17, 2017 on the Delimitation Committee Report, until 4th December.

The Court made this order consequent to a writ petition filed by six electors who challenged the legality of the Gazette Notification issued by Minister of Provincial Councils and Local Government on the Delimitation Committee Report with regard to the boundaries in respect of Local Authorities.
