Sirisena signed a special gazette notification, dissolving the Parliament from Saturday, Xinhua quoting a report said.

The island nation has been facing a political turmoil since October 26, when President Sirisena dissolved his cabinet and sacked Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and appointed former president Mahinda Rajapakse to the post.
