Dec 13, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna says they will bring an impeachment motion against the President Maithripala Sirisena for violating the constitution if he continues the political crisis disregarding the top court's decision.
JVP MP Vijitha Herath said an impeachment motion can be brought against President Sirisena based on today’s Supreme Court verdict, but the party will only initiate it if President continues to stick to his stance.
