An organisation identifying itself as Women for Justice yesterday filed a petition in the Court of Appeal seeking a Quo Warranto order to unseat former Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe from his parliamentarian seat.  
The organisation’s co-chairman Sharmila Gonawela told the media that Mr. Wickremesinghe’s membership in Parliament was illegal.   


She claimed that while Mr. Wickremesinghe was functioning as a parliamentarian a company of his was involved in business with State organisations and institutions and as such he could not act as a parliamentarian.   
She said therefore she sought the Court to declare that his membership in parliament was null and void.
