The Gazette Extraordinary pertaining to the dissolution of the parliament is set to be published at midnight tomorrow (02), government sources told Ada Derana.

This is under the power vested in the President by the 19th Amendment to dissolve the parliament after four and a half years of the sitting of Parliament.

The five-year term of the 8th Parliament, which began on September 1, 2015 – including elected members of the parliamentary elections held on August 17, 2015 – is due to expire in August this year.

However, according to the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, the President has the power to dissolve the Parliament after four and a half years.

Accordingly, the President can dissolve Parliament at any given moment after 12 midnight today (01).

Further, the date of the general election should also be announced at the dissolution of Parliament. The General Election will be held on the 25th of April, according to trusted government sources.
