UPFA to file legal action against Fonseka: Premjayantha

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 26 January 2010, 18:34 GMT]
Susil Premjayantha, general secretary of the ruling United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA) and a senior minister in the government led by incumbent President Mahinda Rajapaksa Tuesday evening said that his party would challenge the victory of General (retd) Sarath Fonseka in Court of Law if he becomes elected president. He made the announcement after the closure of presidential poll and after counting of postal votes began.

Several other ministers participated in the joint press conference. He added General Fonseka was not a voter.

Despite the Commissioner of Elections Dayananda Dissanayake ruling that the factor he (Fonseka) was not a registered voter had no bearing on being elected Preident, Minister Susil Premjayantha said the matter would be challenged in courts as General Fonseka was not qualified to be elected President.
