GG Asked to Dissolve Parliament


In keeping with constitutional provisions Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller has written to Governor General Professor Kenneth Hall requesting the dissolution of Parliament with effect from July 25th 2007, to make way for the holding of Jamaica’s 15th General Elections since Adult Suffrage.
The Chief Parliamentary Counsel acting on the instruction of the Governor General will now prepare a Proclamation for the Dissolution of Parliament, for signature and gazetting before midnight on July 25th. A Proclamation for the fixing of the date for general elections will also be issued.
Both Proclamations will pave the way for the nomination of candidates on Tuesday, August 7 and the holding of General Elections on Monday August 27.
