Wed, Jan 9, 2013, 12:04 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 09, Colombo: A parliamentarian of a leftist party, Lanka Sama Samaja Party (LSSP), a coalition partner of Sri Lanka's ruling alliance, has decided to vote in favor of the impeachment motion against the Chief Justice Dr. Shirani Bandaranayake.

The Kegalle district MP of LSSP Y.G. Padmasiri has decided to vote for the impeachment of the Chief Justice despite the decision taken by the LSSP to abstain from voting on the motion, political sources said.

The MP has made a special statement at the LSSP central committee as well in this regard. He has said that he will be with the government and will vote in favor of the impeachment to safeguard the supremacy of the legislature.

He has summoned the people's representatives of the LSSP of Kegalle district and they have endorsed his decision, sources close to the MP say.

LSSP central committee earlier decided to abstain from voting which will take place following the two-day debate scheduled for January 10 and 11.
