Jan 05, Colombo: Former Chief Justice Sarath N. Silva has said that the Judiciary cannot issue orders on Parliament elected by the people's mandate.
The former top judge has pointed out that the duty of the Judiciary is to implement laws formulated by the legislature.
The duty of the Judiciary is to resolve crises when they occur, not to issue orders or intervene in the legislature's power to formulate laws, Silva has explained.
People's mandate being implemented through the legislature that functions under the Speaker is responsible to the people, Silva has said.
Silva has explained that added when a referendum is held people can implement their power directly and no other institution can intervene.
Judiciary cannot call on the Parliament to formulate a certain law as it would be exceeding its powers, he noted.
