Sri Lanka’s Supreme Court extends stay on dissolution of parliament

Sri Lanka’s Supreme Court has extended a stay against the dissolution of parliament, which was initially issued by Maithripala Sirisena last month as Colombo was plunged into political turmoil.

The decision, taken this morning, means that the stay order has been extended until December 10.

A seven member bench is currently hearing the fundamental rights petition filed against the president's dissolving of parliament.
