Attorney General has filed a motion in the Supreme Court requesting that a full bench of the Supreme Court be constituted to hear the Fundamental Rights petitions filed by political parties and other organisations, challenging the dissolution of Parliament by President Maithripala Sirisena on November 9.

The Motion making the request that the proceedings be heard by all judges of the nine-member Supreme Court was filed by the AG under Article 132(3) of the Constitution this week.

The AG in the motion said that the substantive matters to be heard by the Court in these proceedings were matters of general and public importance and the Court would be required to interpret several provisions of the Constitution. This would have a direct bearing on the sovereignty of the people, including the exercise of the executive powers of the people by the President, the franchise of the people and their fundamental rights.
