LESOTHO 9th PARLIAMENT DISSOLVED

The Deputy Prime Minister, Mr. Mothetjoa Metsing says His Majesty King Letsie III has accepted the Prime Ministers advice to dissolve the 9th Parliament in accordance with legal notice 22 of 2017.

The Deputy Prime Minister announced this in his statement delivered at the Lesotho Television Studio on Tuesday.

He said after dissolution of Parliament, the Constitution provides that elections should be held within 90 days, saying the Electoral law makes a condition that four days after dissolution of parliament, the polling date should be set.

He therefore promised the nation that government will continue to inform Basotho about new developments.

Dissolution of Parliament follows a motion of no confidence against the Prime Minister and the coalition government which was passed in the National Assembly by Members of Parliament for opposition parties on March 01.
