The petition requested the Court to declare the return of Mahinda Rajapaksa as undue and to declare Sarath Fonseka the duly elected President of Sri Lanka.
President Mahinda Rajapaksa was named the first and Elections Commissioner Dayananda Dissanayake the 22nd in a list of 26 respondents (See page 6 for full list and text of the petition) cited in Fonseka's petition.
The petition also requested the Court to order a scrutiny of all the ballots cast at the poll to be carried out by the Commissioner of Election and his officials in the presence of the petitioner and the other candidates at the poll or their representatives.
The petition said that due to a violation of election laws and corrupt practices committed by the first respondent, Mahinda Rajapaksa, the majority of electors had been prevented from electing the candidate of their choice, namely Fonseka, and/or the result may have been affected by acts of intimidation, violation of laws and the commission of corrupt practices.
