The Constitutional Council has rejected President Maithripala Sirisena’s nominee Judge Deepali Wijesundara as the Appeal Court President, Parliamentary sources said yesterday.  

This was the second time the Constitutional Council rejected President’s nominee as the same person was nominated by the President earlier as well.   
According to sources, the President had nominated Ms. Wijesundara as the President of the Court of Appeal in place of Judge Padman Surasena who was appointed as a Supreme court Judge recently.  
The Constitutional Council which met yesterday decided to fill the vacancies of all independent commissions and therefore had sent six names which it had approved for the Police Commission.
