No power to cancel nominations - Mahinda Deshapriya Featured

Chairman of the National Elections' Commission - Mahinda Deshapriya has said that it is not possible to cancel nominations.

Therefore, even if parliament is reconvened, a parliamentary decision should be reached with regard to the nominations, he has added.

Accordingly, the commission was compelled to inform the president to take a decision after seeking the advice of the Supreme Court and Attorney General, he has said.

As there is no explanation of the present situation in the constitution, the Executive, the Judiciary and the Constitution much reach a solution, Mr. Deshapriya has further added.
