Jan 05, Colombo: A leftist party in Sri Lanka's coalition government is to vote against the impeachment motion against Chief Justice Dr. Shirani Bandaranayake when it is taken for a vote in parliament.

Secretary of the Communist Party of Sri Lanka, Senior Minister D.E.W. Gunasekera has said the party has decided to vote against the impeachment motion.

He has said that the Communist Party would also hold discussions with the other leftist parties in the government.

According to Gunasekera, a common decision on the Supreme Court verdict on the parliamentary select committee (PSC) that probed the impeachment motion is to be reached after discussions with Leader of the Lanka Sama Samaja Party (LSSP) Minister Prof. Tissa Vitharana and Leader of the Democratic Leftist Front Vasudeva Nanayakkara.

Earlier, the three ministers requested the President to prorogue the parliament in a bid to resolve the current standoff between the legislature and judiciary.
