Dec 10, Colombo: Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena has announced that he will request the Supreme Court to issue the decision of the petition against the dissolution of Parliament.

The President has announced that he will make a request to the Chief Justice Nalin Perera through the Attorney General to issue the verdict without delay.

President Sirisena made his stance today during a special meeting held with the United People's Freedom Alliance (UPFA) parliamentarians, MP Wimal Weerawansa said.

Accordingly, Wimal Weerawansa told the media today that the Chief Justice would be asked whether the verdict could be obtained before the 14th.

Speaking to media MP Weerawansa said the whole country is waiting for the Supreme Court's decision regarding the dissolution of the parliament.

He pointed out that usually the judiciary takes leave for the holiday season from the 14th but they will still make rulings on cases and expressed hope the Supreme Court will announce its decision before the 14th December.

The MP, also questioning the validity of the Appellate Court's interim injunction against President-appointed prime minister Mahinda Rajapaksa and the cabinet, said the Supreme Court has not yet decided on hearing the appeal filed against the lower court's ruling.
