A Sri Lankan court on Friday dismissed a legal case challenging presidential candidate Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s Sri Lankan citizenship, removing a major barrier he faced in contesting the Novenber 16 poll.

The three-judge panel of Appeal Court unanimously dismissed the case that challenged the validity of Rajapaksa’s Sri Lankan citizenship, which he obtained in 2005, according to Reuters.
