‘Geetha’s letter irrelevant to us’ – says Mahinda

Although MP Geetha Kumaratunge had submitted the letter stating that she had withdrawn her dual citizenship, as there is no election as yet, it is irrelevant to the Election Commission, said its Chairman Mahinda Deshapriya.

As the Supreme Court has issued a stay order on the gazette notification dissolving parliament and prevented the Election Commission from holding an election, the removal of a person’s dual citizenship is not relevant to his department, he noted.
