Naseer’s seat in SLMC falls vacant



Parliamentary Secretary General Kushani Anusha Rohanadeera has notified the Election Commission that the Parliamentary seat held by Environment Minister Naseer Ahmed Zainulabdeen has now become vacant.

Accordingly, it is expected that the candidate who received the second-highest number of votes in the Batticaloa district list of the Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) will fill the seat.

The gazette notification regarding the appointment of the new MP is to be issued soon.

Former MP Seyed Ali Zahir Mowlana is expected to re-enter Parliament to assume the seat formerly held by Zainulabdeen.

Zainulabdeen lost his seat following the ruling by the Supreme Court last week, which affirmed the validity and lawfulness of his expulsion from the SLMC.
