* Challenges against Sri Lanka main opposition party's general assembly continue
Thu, Nov 29, 2012, 08:12 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Nov 29, Colombo: Nugegoda Magistrate Namal Tissa Balagalla issued summons to main opposition United National Party (UNP) leader Ranil Wickremasinghe and the General Secretary Tissa Attanayaka to appear in court over a petition filed against them.

Opposition leader of Devinuwara Pradeshiya Sabha Thushara Wijesuriya has filed the petition against the party executive committee appealing to prevent the party from amending its constitution without the approval of the National Executive Committee of the party.

The petitioner argued that any amendment of the UNP constitution needed to be approved by the 800-member National Executive Committee which the petitioner says has not met for two years.

The petitioner requests the court to issue an order to the working committee of the UNP to refrain from amending the party constitution. However, the magistrate declined to issue this order. Meanwhile Mount Lavinia additional district judge Pradeep Abeysekara postponed delivering a judgment regarding a petition filed against the UNP general assembly.

The petitioner W.G.G. Karunathilaka of Akuressa appeals for an interim injunction against the UNP general assembly which is scheduled to be held on December 01.
