Geetha Kumarasinghe has filed an appeal at the Supreme Court against the Appeal Court’s decision which disqualified her as a parliamentarian.

A court of appeal decision recently ruled that Kumaasinghe could not hold a seat in parliament as she was also dual citizenship holder. Speaking to a news paper, Kumarasinghe said her lawyers had filed the appeal at the Supreme Court.

“I will also meet and inform the chairman of the elections commission that I can remain a parliamentarian until the Supreme Court decision,” she said.
