* Leftist party minister calls to resolve Sri Lanka's clash between legislature and judiciary soon
Sun, Jan 6, 2013, 12:16 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 06, Colombo: A leftist party Minister of the Sri Lankan government says the current clash between the legislature and judiciary has created an unhealthy situation in the country.

General Secretary of the Communist Party of Sri Lanka and Senior Minister D.E.W. Gunasekera has said the clash could lead to lawlessness in the country.

He has observed that the country had not experienced such a situation and that the current issue needed to be resolved soon.

The leftist parties in the government recently proposed to the President to prorogue parliament to take time to rethink the impeachment motion against the Chief Justice and to resolve the current crisis. However, the President had turned down the proposal.

Gunasekera has said the Communist Party would decide on its stance on the report of the parliamentary select committee (PSC) that probed allegations against the Chief Justice and the impeachment motion after hearing the Speaker's statement in parliament.
