The Supreme Court has informed Speaker Karu Jayasuriya that several sections of the Judicature Bill were inconsistent with the Constitution and therefore, it should be passed by a two-thirds majority in Parliament, if not amended as recommended by the Judiciary.

    Only the JO members will vote against the Bill .So is it difficult to get a two- third majority to get the Bill passedin Parliament?
