President urged to revert to status quo prior to October 26

Eksath Bhikku Peramuna Secretary Ven. Bopitiye Dhammissara Thera urged President Maithripala Sirisena yesterday to revert to a status quo that prevailed in the country prior to the October 26 in the light of the Supreme Court decision and save the country from the present constitutional crisis.

The Thera was addressing a media briefing held in Temple Trees yesterday.

“Sri Lanka has become a country with no government today. It is heading towards anarchy. The Treasury has no funds to pay salaries of the public servants from January as the budget or a Vote on Account has not been passed in Parliament,” the Thera said.

“If the Executive does not uphold the Parliamentary sovereignty and the independence of the Judiciary, it is a breach of the trust of the people,” the Thera said.

“We hope that President would respect the judgment of the courts and save the country from the current calamity,” the Thera said.
