Cabinet approves dissolution of the Sixteenth Lok Sabha

The Union Cabinet, chaired by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, today gave its approval to the Resolution advising the President to dissolve the Sixteenth Lok Sabha, which was constituted on 18.05.2014.

Background:

Article 83(2) of the Constitution stipulates that the House of the People, unless sooner dissolved, shall continue for five years from the date appointed for its first meeting and no longer and the expiration of the said period of five years shall operate as dissolution of the House.  The first meeting of the Sixteenth Lok Sabha was held on June 4, 2014, when members were administered oath and affirmation.  The life of the present Lok Sabha is, therefore, to expire on June 3, 2019, unless the President dissolves it earlier.

A statement showing the last dates of the polls, dates of the constitution, first sitting and expiration of term and dissolution of the First to Fifteenth Lok Sabha is attached.

MODI RETURN TO THE POWER:2.0
