A petition has been filed in the Supreme Court claiming that Speaker Karu Jayasuriya has insulted the judiciary by calling the parliament against an injunction order issued by the Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court has issued a prohibition order against dissolving the parliament and abolishing the gazette notification issued by the President. Petitioner Aruna Laksiri has made the petition to the Supreme Court.
While, a gazette notification issued by the President to dissolve Parliament was abdicated by the court, the Speaker has summoned the parliament under the previous gazette notification issued by the President prior to the court order.
