Another legal battle looms after EC rejects objections

Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) elections are due on May 20 and there is a great chance of it ending up in court as it did in 2018. After all, trading allegations, filing objections and seeking legal intervention to stop the poll or get rid of individuals the stakeholders feel aren’t qualified for office are all par for the course.

Shocked by the Election Committee’s (EC) decision to reject all their objections, ‘The Big Three’, as they call themselves–K. Mathivanan, Nishantha Ranatunga and Bandula Warnapura–are ready to take up legal cudgels if the Appeal Board does not give them a “fair” hearing. They had opposed all candidates put forward by the current administration headed by Shammi Silva but the EC threw out their concerns, forcing them to appeal.
