Philippine Daily Inquirer - - WORLD -

Sri Lankan Pres­i­dent Maithri­pala Sirisena dis­solved par­lia­ment on Fri­day night and called a gen­eral elec­tion for Jan. 5 in a move that will likely deepen the coun­try’s po­lit­i­cal cri­sis. The dis­so­lu­tion, which is ex­pected to be chal­lenged in court, was re­vealed in an official gazette no­ti­fi­ca­tion signed by Sirisena which also set the next sit­ting of par­lia­ment for Jan. 17.
