EPDP member suspended from Jaffna Urban Council by court order

An EPDP member of Jaffna Urban Council has been served an interim ban on sitting and voting in the council, pending a case filed against him at the Colombo Court of Appeals.

A petition was filed against K. V. Kugenthiran alleging that he holds dual citizenship and is therefore ineligible to hold elected office.

The petition also states that the Elections Commission and selection officers broke election rules by allowing his membership, which should be declared void.
