Sri Lanka’s President Maithripala Sirisena dissolved Parliament on Friday, cabinet co-spokesman Keheliya Rambukwella said.

He said that President Maithripala Sirisena has signed the Gazette notice.

The move to dissolve Parliament comes after the ruling United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) confirmed on Friday it did not have the numbers to show majority in Parliament to remain in Government.
