Parliament is likely to be dissolved either tonight or tomorrow night to enable General Elections to be conducted by the middle of August, informed sources said yesterday.

The United National Party (UNP), the key partner of the government, has been pressing for the immediate dissolution of Parliament. The major parties have already started  work on identifying suitable candidates to contest the elections. The UNP has begun to receive applications from prospective candidates. The UPFA group that backs former president Mahinda Rajapaksa has assigned two MPs to each district to work out nomination lists.
