No person of authority to receive delimitation report! Featured

The delimitation committee has failed to find a person of authority to handover its report.

Committee chairman Asoka Peiris told Sri Lanka Mirror that he was in difficulties after having said the report would be handed over to the provincial council and local government minister today (27).

However, the subject minister has gone overseas, and no minister has been appointed to act in his place, he noted.

It was pointless to entrust the report to ministry secretary Kamal Padmasiri, he said, noting that there were no provisions to do so either.

The report comprises three volumes on delimitation, demarcation and mapping, said Peiris.

Meanwhile, opposition MP Udaya Gammanpila told the media yesterday that he would go to courts to seek a writ order for the announcement of the committee report through a gazette notification.

The subject minister could be overseas, but the report could be handed over to the deputy minister or the ministry secretary, he added.
