Colombo. Sri Lanka’s Supreme Court on Tuesday stayed President Maithripala Sirisena’s decision to dissolve parliament until next month in a further twist in the country’s political crisis.

Sirisena dissolved parliament on Friday night and called a general election for Jan. 5.

Two weeks after removing his coalition prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe Sirisena dissolved parliament on Friday night and called a general election for Jan. 5.

The top court, hearing a punch of petitions by supporters of Wickremesinghe, stayed the president’s order on technical grounds, a Reuters reporter in court said.
