Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena has dissolved parliament, paving the way for an early general election.
“The president signed a gazette notification dissolving parliament with effect from midnight today,” government spokesman Rajitha Senaratne said.
Mr Sirisena’s decision to dissolve parliament came shortly after a spokesman for the United National Party (UNP) said it had formally requested him to do so.
Rumors suggest that general election will held on 17th of August.
