JVP MP Vijitha Herath said even though a month had gone by, the President had still not appointed to the Supreme Court the two Justices whose nomination were approved by the Constitutional Council.

He told parliament that the Constitutional Council convened by the Speaker on October 25 approved the nominations of justices S. Thurairaja PC and E.A.G.R. Amarasekara to be appointed to the Supreme Court.

The MP requested the Speaker to intervene in the matter.

Speaker Karu Jayasuriya said he had informed the President about this matter. (Ajith Siriwardana and Yohan Perera)
