THE CONSTITUTION IS A PIECE OF PAPER WRITTEN IN ESSENCE TO SAFEGUARD THE PEOPLE FROM THE RULERS AND THEIR SUPPOSED TO BE REPRESENTATIVES. IF IN THE END, THE VERY CONSTITUTION IS STANDING IN THE WAY OF GETTING RID OF A UTTERLY CORRUPT POLITICIAN, A CRIMINAL WHO IS IN NO SMALL MEASURE IMPLICATED IN MASS SCALE TORTURE AND KILLING, PUBLIC FRAUD AND NOW IN THE END AN ASSASSINATION ATTEMPT ON THE PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF SRI LANKA HIMSELF, IT IS DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND WHO IS THERE TO DEFEND THE PEOPLE OR THE VERY PARLIAMENT TO WHICH THEY HAVE TO SEND THEIR REPRESENTATIVES TO LEGISLATE THEIR RIGHTS.

THE PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF SRI LANKA MUST HAVE THE CHOICE TO HAND OVER THE POSITION OF THE PRIME MINISTER TO A PERSON WHO HE BELIEVES UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES AND IN HIS CONSIDERED OPINION, CAPABLE OF GOVERNANCE, HAVE THE EAR OF THE PEOPLE AND THEIR INTERESTS AT HEART TO BE THE NEXT PRIME MINISTER. IN THE EVENT HE DOES NOT HAVE THE NECESSARY MAJORITY TO LEAD THE PARLIAMENT, THE ONLY ALTERNATIVE IS TO GO BEFORE THE VERY SOURCE OF ALL POLITICAL POWER – THE PEOPLE.

THE HONORABLE SUPREME COURT WILL HAVE TO TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION NOT ONLY WHAT IS THERE NOW WRITTEN IN THE CONSTITUTION, BUT ALSO THE WAY IT WAS BROUGHT ABOUT TO BE AND WHAT IT IS TODAY BY THE INTRODUCTION OF THE 19TH AMENDMENT.  THE WAY IT WAS TAKEN TO VOTING IN THE PARLIAMENT AT THE PENULTIMATE HOURS OF THE DAY, DISREGARDING ADVICE OF A SUPREME COURT DECISION SHOWS THE LACKDAISICAL MANNER IN WHICH THE PARLIAMENT CONDUCTED HERSELF THEN AND DURING THE LAST THREE AND A HALF YEARS WHEN THE YAHAPALANA CABAL WAS IN POWER.

THEY ALSO MUST TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION THE ANTI- DEMOCRATIC AND DISGRACEFUL CONDUCT OF THE SPEAKER NOT ONLY DURING THE PAST FEW WEEKS, BUT DURING THE WHOLE TIME HE WAS THE SPEAKER DEPRIVING THE NATION OF A VALID OPPOSITION.  THEY MUST SEE THAT ALL THE THREE PILLARS OF GOVERNANCE – THE EXECUTIVE, THE LEGISLATURE AND THE JUDICIARY HAVE BALANCED POWERS AND WHAT HAS BEEN BROUGHT ABOUT BY THE 19TH AMENDMENT ARE THOSE THAT FAVOURS A PARLIAMENTARY CRYPTOCRACY AND NOTHING ELSE.

WHAT IS SUPREME ARE THE PEOPLE AND NOT THE CONSTITUTION. FOR ALL PURPOSES AND INTENTS NOW IT TURNS OUT THAT THE CURRENT CONSTITUTION TO BE AN IMPERFECT DOCUMENT FULL OF HOLES, LACKING EVEN SIMPLE LOGIC, BROUGHT ABOUT TO SAFEGUARD NOT THE PEOPLE, BUT A FEW POLITICIANS AND DEPRIVE CERTAIN OTHERS OF THEIR LEGITIMATE RIGHTS. IT IS ALSO A LOPSIDED IN THAT IT IS HEAVILY WEIGHTED ON THE SIDE OF THE LEGISLATURE THE PARLIAMENT AND AT PRESENT AND FOR THE LAST ONE MONTH THE PEOPLE OF SRI LANKA ARE HELD HOSTAGE BY A MERE 225 LEGISLATORS WHO THINK THEY ARE THE FONT OF ALL POWER IN SRI LANKA.  THE NATION IS LITERALLY AT A STANDSTILL AND LOOKING IN ASKANCE AND WAITING FOR ENLIGHTENED DECISIONS BY THE SUPREME COURT ON ALL CASES PERTAINING TO THE CRURRENT POLITICAL CRISIS AND THE RESULTANT IMBROGLIO!

PEOPLE OF SRI LANKA EXPECTS THE HONOURABLE COURTS TO TAKE THE WHOLE PICTURE INTO ACCOUNT, THE CONSTITUTION IN ALL ITS INTENTS AND PURPOSES FOR WHICH IT WAS WRITTEN IN MAKING THIER DELIBERATIONS AND ARRIVING AT A NOBLE DECISION THAT WOULD STAND THE TEST OF TIME, BENEFIT THE SRI LANKAN NATION AS A WHOLE AS WELL LEAVE A PRECEDENT WORTH EMULATING BY STUDENTS OF LAW AND THE LEGAL FRATERNITY IN THE FUTURE.

IF ON THE OTHER HAND THE SUPREME COURTS DECISIONS ARE BASED SOLELY ON LEGALESE, THEN NOT TOO FAR IN THE FUTURE THIS FUNCTION WILL BE DELEGATED TO A HEARTLESS SUPER COMPUTER AND THE SUPREME COURT ITSELF BECOME REDUNDANT FOR ALL PURPOSES AND INTENTS!

THE PEOPLE OF SRI LANKA EXPECTS THAT ONLY A PARLIAMENTARY ELECTION CAN BRING ABOUT DEMOCRACY AND SAFETY TO SRI LANKA AND NOT THOSE ENSCONCED IN THE PARLIAMENT WHO HAVE PROVED TIME AND AGAIN TO BE UTTERLY AND IRREDEEMABLY MORALLY AND OTHERWISE CORRUPT. THE WAY THEY HAVE PLAYED POLITICS WITH THE PEOPLE’S RIGHTS DURING THE LAST THREE AND A HALF YEARS MAKE THEM INELIGIBLE TO CALL THEMSELVES PEOPLE’S REPRESENTATIVES.

FOR THIS REASON ALONE, PEOPLE MUST BE GIVEN THE CHANCE TO CHOOSE A NEW SET OF REPRESENTATIVES WITH A FRESH MANDATE.  WE AWAIT AN ENLIGHTENED DECISION BY THE HONOURABLE JUSTICES OF THE SUPREME COURT.

MAY THE TRIPLE GEM BLESS OUR NATION!

    Fate of Mother Lanka lies in the hands of the following SC Bench now.

    1. Chief Justice Nalin Perera,
    2. Justice Buwaneka Aluwihare,
    3. Justice Sisira J de Abrew,
    4. Justice Priyantha Jayawardena,
    5. Justice Prasanna S. Jayawardena,
    6. Justice Vijith K. Malalgoda and
    7. Justice Murdu Fernando.

    Lets see if they are going by the word by word of a document made by selfish humans with errors and interpret it as a holy book in favour of a bunch or rogues who are waiting to sell piece by piece of Mother Lanka.

    They have to remember that they were made educated free by Mother Lanka herself to sit in such high places. If they contribute to the destruction of Mother Lanka, they will pay back severely for this bad deed.

    They will be easily provided with free foreign education for their children and many other perks and bribes in millions if they go with the West’s demand of placing back Run-nil in the driving seat.

    Let’s wait and see!! Mother Lanka only has the power of the deities who looks after this land. If the country looses this battle, what we have to realise is that Satan has stepped onto this blessed land and not to expect anything good.

    What the writer has put in bold letters is interesting: I was discussing with someone this morning that if the judges try to go by the logic in the constitution then there is no need for humans to interpret it. A simple computer can easily be programmed to deliver the judgement in a flash.
    Computers work on a combination of “true” or “false” (i.e. 0s and 1s) statement using logic gates. Operations of banks are being replaced by computer programmes; so are the operations of large factories. Why not the judiciary, if they cannot do the job efficiently without wasting time?. We have seen some criminal politicos go in and out of remand and then in and out of the country with ease, all with consent and approval of courts. We are surprised as to how their logical minds work.

    I have said it before, and I’ll say it again:

    The President’s SUPREME DUTY is to PROTECT the nation and the INTERESTS of the voting citizens; it is NOT TO PROTECT a HIJACKED Parliament dominated by a crew of criminals who have LOST THE SUPPORT of the Voters.

    As there is CLEARLY a DOUBT that the UNP/Yamaplanaya commands the support of the voters who ELECTED it in 2015, there is BUT ONE WAY FORWARD: DISSOLVE the Parliament and HOLD NEW PARLIAMENTARY ELECTIONS!

    To that end, the PRESIDENT should IGNORE the COURTS if NEED BE, DECLARE a National EMERGENCY & MARTIAL LAW if NECESSARY, DISSOLVE PARLIAMENT, and HOLD NEW PARLIAMENTARY ELECTIONS to DETERMINE the VOTER’S WILL!

    When ALL ELSE FAILS, ADOPT the SIMPLEST SOLUTION!
