A petition was filed in the Supreme Court today requesting to issue a writ order declaring the gazette notification to call for the presidential election was illegal.

The petition was filed by former Galle Mayor Methsiri De Silva.

According to the EC's gazette, nominations for the poll would be called on October 7.
