Sri Lanka Cricket will be forced to postpone their election following a directive from the Attorney General’s Department. Sports Ministry sought AG’s advise on a complaint they received on the formation of the Election Committee. According to the Sports Regulations the Election Committee who is responsible in conducting the election, should be appointed at an Annual General Meeting or at a Special General Meeting.
However SLC has not followed the regulations when forming five-member committee as it was done by the the Executive Committee.
Therefore, AG has advised SLC to respect the Sports Regulations and call for a Special General Meeting to form the Election Committee.
Sri Lanka Cricket elections are scheduled for May 19 and the nominations closed at 3 p.m today.
