* Sri Lanka Marxist party predicts more crises with the removal of Chief Justice
Mon, Jan 14, 2013, 11:19 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 14, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) says that a series of crises would begin with the removal of the Chief Justice instead of resolving the current crisis as believed by the government.

JVP General Secretary Tilvin Silva said the government would be foolish to think that the removal of the Chief Justice would be the end of the issue with the judiciary.

Silva said the JVP has decided not to accept the appointment of a new Chief Justice since the since the removal of Chief Justice Dr. Shirani Bandaranayake was unlawful.

He added that the right to interpret the Constitution is with the Supreme Court and the government has moved with the impeachment process ignoring the Supreme Court interpretation of the Constitution.

"The President would not be able to shirk responsibility from the crises faced by the country following the government's unconstitutional acts," Silva observed.
