Ranil says SC decision came as no surprise, laughs at SJB


By Saman Indrajith

Former Prime Minister and UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe yesterday said that he knew the Supreme Court would dismiss fundamental rights violation petitions challenging the date of the election and that was the reason why the UNP had not resorted to legal action.

Wickremesinghe said that both the TNA and the JVP had been aware of the situation and, therefore, refrained from taking the matter to the Supreme Court.

Addressing a group of former Ministers and MPs who called on the UNP leader at his Kollupitiya residence, the former Prime Minister said the decision by the five-judge bench confirmed the UNP’s position on the matter.
