Mohan can't be SLC Chairman - Shammi to contest for post

It was announced before the Court of Appeal today (20) that steps will be taken to hold the election of Sri Lanka Cricket tomorrow (21) based on the agreement reached between two parties.

This was stated when the writ petition filed by Mohan de Silva and Ravin Wickremaratne before the Appeal Court requesting the Sports Minister to accept their nominations for the election was called.

The two sides informed that it was agreed that Mohan de Silva would not contest for the position of Chairman, but to the position of Secretary, and Rawin Wickramaratne for the position of Deputy Chairman or Vice Chairman.

The petition was taken up before the Bench comprising Court of Appeal Justice Deepali Wijesundera and Arjuna Obeysekera.

However, Shammi de Silva is planning to contest the post of Chairman under the Thilanga’s faction.
