* Marxist party of Sri Lanka accuses government of trying to disrupt balance of power
Tue, Nov 6, 2012, 07:44 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Nov 06, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) says the present government is trying to disrupt the balance of power through the impeachment motion against the Chief Justice.

JVP Propaganda Secretary and parliamentarian Vijitha Herath said the government's impeachment motion against Chief Justice Dr. Shirani Bandaranayake is not only a move against an individual, but an attempt to disrupt the balance of power in the country.

He noted that it was essential to maintain the balance of power between the executive, legislature and judiciary.

Herath explained that the impeachment motion against the Chief Justice by the government therefore is an undemocratic and illegal measure to allow the executive control of the judiciary.

According to Herath, people need to continue to protest against the current situation.
