Fri, Jan 4, 2013, 12:00 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 03, Colombo: Deputy Speaker of Sri Lanka parliament Chandima Weerakkody said today at the parliament that the government would not accept the interpretations of the Court of Appeal regarding the Parliamentary Select Committee (PSC) against the Chief Justice Dr. Shirani Bandaranayake.

He said that the Speaker had already expressed the view on the judiciary processes against the impeachment and according to it another party cannot challenge the powers of the legislature.

However, the cabinet spokesman Keheliya Rambukwella said at the cabinet press briefing today that the Speaker Chamal Rajapaksa will make a statement regarding the status of the Court ruling over the Chief Justice's issue on January 8 and until then there will be no comment from the government.

He made this statement responding to questions from journalists.

"If we comment on the issue it would be only our personal opinions. Therefore await the announcement of the Speaker," he said.
