That is an INTELLIGENT decision; a political KID speaks of her opinions
There was a very popular saying among the people of last decade tha they used to mutter and tried to apply for certain things of their practical life , even the kids used to do that. Actually I can’t remember whether this saying was dialogued in a television drama or in an advertisement. Any how the dialogue that Mr. Liynage ( father of Saumya Liyanage) used to act and mutter here is the dialogue ………….‘I know the law putha’ ( son) but let me tell you before I explore this essay any further ‘ I know no law’ my knowledge about law is less than 10% . But there are administering body who knows and have learnt according to my memory of reading apart from the net of courts of the country.
So in the televised drama or an advertisement, the person tried to prove his awareness with regard to law and order of the society he lived when ever he does something, which was to some extent, occasionally became a strange thing for others. When you live in a society it is true that you need to have some sense about what is good or bad if not you must at least consult a person who knows bit of such. I am aware that no shop keeper can sell out dated household goods to their consumers I don’t know what act that describes or ‘in what consumer’s code of conduct’ or in what manual that encloses. And if you buy any garment from a shop the tag behind the collar or within a garment, normally indicates that if you are returning that garment purchased or item you need to bring it back within three days without removing the tag’. And there are some places which displace ‘using mobile phones in this premise is prohibited (?) then you can’t use your phone. And it is not ethical if others use others phones for their purposes. Those are minor things that most people are aware of but if you take big things like contents of constitutions for example some people have less awareness or no awareness ‘ then what is the duty or responsibility of the subject known’, organize some awareness programmes within every gama or province for people to get bit of understanding on the subject.
Like some scholars pointed out, I believe that if there is any confusion in any of the society, among people the duty of responsible parties, authorized is to ‘clear their doubts’, clear their confusions.
If we can’t solve something lets say a dispute in a community, between two families, we normally go to a nearest police station seeking a ‘solution’, justice. Why? Because that is one of the acceptable ways and if you know bit of law then you know what to do if something similar arises within a society. That is not what you called ‘unnecessary interruption, interference’ though if you consider ‘police is a second or third part if you take your family as a single and independent unit because it is written and established in this society since long years now. Normally no one likes when others interrupting or interfering their p e r s o n a l lives then you say there is no p r i v a c y , look in this world the letters of privacy has split and those letters can be seen not together but all over this space you recognize as ‘ libertyful’ but that is something you need to understand within a different frame work. In a society where there is some law and order that the society thinks should practice things become little different.
This not a society that everything solve by a panchayak sbha or muladeni, korale mahaththaya, gampathi of gama or any gam sabha of old admin system of the country. Everything has changed no matter who established those laws or rules in the society, other than then rules of the society stay or act, apparent within a community as Norms and Values.
I do not know this political kid thinks that we are using the laws and rules that somebody else has given to us or meant to establish in this society at the immature stage of applying or using laws from the book of law. Pre – Post independence, in some stages of admin or political history of this country’s constitutions changed slightly or added things slightly at various stages due to what so ever society or political needs of the country. But I believe if you take the set of law and regulations high percentage of its content is not what we originally created considering the needs and wants of the society, local. I believe. So who ever established or introduced some of the laws and regulations are universally acceptable. What I am trying to emphasize here is that some of the things needs at least the constitutions should be altered if the things contain gives the society any confusions or unclearness via what ever sentences or chapters.
The regulations or the content of some constitutions for instance about the regulations, sentences or chapters that explains the ‘characteristics of the executive presidency’ that according to this political kids memory or knowledge ‘by ex executive president J. R. Jayawardena who was a member of the UNP, the political party. The decision I believe that the ex president had to take considering the needs and wants of then society, according to his political or admin intelligence. That was solely a fresh thing and different to what the country was practicing by then. I am sure there were many who opposed and supported to the decision taken by the President J. R Jayawardena. But since 1977 – 2014 every government practiced the ‘executive presidency’ introduced by President Jayawardena (UNP).
If this political kid’s awareness on political happenings are accurate ‘some of the chapters or sentences were removed, altered or adjusted within last half a decade or so. I did not hear or so, perhaps I may not noticed there were no ha ho about such changes like some screams today about the decision that the present president of the country Mr. Mahinda Rajapakse deciding to re candidate for the Presidential election before or after incompletion or completion of duration allocated by the regulations or rules of the constitution.
So this political kid thinks that contents of any constitutions can be altered if that never harms ‘the lives of people of this country’. And if the person knows how to use the tools given to him, if you consider executive presidency is a tool not a weapon then there is no reason to be afraid.
I believe that it is a good decision taken by the government to get advise from the country’s reputed, prideful institution that so far shown and proved ‘ justice is justice’ to their country people. And this occasion of confusion the people of this country can expect their decision or advice on ‘current president deciding to face the presidential election for the third time. I think that decision of justice system is already released (?) and the whole country by now is aware of the decision, except me?
What ever decision that the court released or will be releasing ‘respecting that, the country must proceed. The parties can continue their things and citizens can decide on their vote. Like this political kid always says ‘the decisions is on the brains of the citizens of this country. The Jury is the people of this country, if you try to equalize ‘an election an appeal of somebody, in other words. After the election the jury = people will send you home the result sheet of their decision after what so ever number of discussions.
Let’s respect the jury of all type, levels. There are some organs called ‘thinking, analyzing , measuring or weighing machines within human’ that understands bit of what is good or bad’, thankfully.
The note of today; I could not post the above essay yesterday. The news that I heard today is that the decision of the court is expected to be released tomorrow. I believe that we all must send our thanks to the scholars who thought of contributing their knowledge by giving their opinions on behalf of the citizens of this country. I don’t think that there is a huge gap between, the responsibilities, duties of professions and yes the rights of some professions.
