CC controversy due to it rejecting President’s nominees for important posts: Dinesh Gunawardena

Dinesh Gunawardena 700 01

UPFA Parliamentarian Dinesh Gunawardena has observed that the current controversy over the Constitutional Council is over the issue of it rejecting the President’s nominees for important posts.

He was speaking in Parliament last week. During his speech, Dinesh said:

"Of late, the CC has been repeatedly rejecting the President’s nominations for important posts. The current controversy is due to this practice. We have repeatedly questioned what criteria the CC follows in making those appointments. Disregarding the seniority, the CC makes appointments by a secret vote.

The political allegiance matters in those appointments by the CC. It is not proper for the CC to reject the President’s nominations. The President respected the Supreme Court decision and acted according to it to avoid a crisis. Isn’t the CC trying to make a new constitutional crisis? The composition of the CC must change."
