Geetha Kumarasinghe loses her parliamentary seat.


Geetha Kumarasinghe’s appeal against the court of appeal judgement is dismissed by a five member supreme court panel. Accordingly, she is declared not qualified to be an MP because she is a duel citizen.
A similar case proceeded in Australia recently and deputy Prime Minister of Australia had to resign from his post as he held the citizenship of New Zealand simultaneously. Chief of the Australian senate and five parliamentarians also faced the same fate due to this matter.
