Principles of Interpretation of Statutes

A statute is a written law passed by a legislative body. The interpretation of a statute is an explanation, or an opinion, of what a written law means. As we are aware that the Constitution is the paramount law of a country, therefore, the law-making process shall strictly be in accordance with the Constitution. In a democratic country, the power is distributed among three fundamental authorities. The Parliament (i.e. the legislative authority) is the law-maker, the Government (i.e. the executive authority) executes the law, and the Courts (i.e. the judicial authority) adjudicates and interprets the law.
