Lesotho’s monarch sets date for next year’s snap poll

Posted on

Maseru – Lesotho’s Constitutional monarch has announced February 28 2015 as the date for holding of the country’s general election.

King Letsie III made the announcement yesterday following the dissolution of parliament on December 5 2014 and after being advised by the Council of State.

The law allows the King, acting in accordance with advice of the State Council, a body established by Lesotho’s Constitution, to announce the date for a holding of the poll within four days of the dissolution of parliament.

Lesotho’s election has been brought forward to next year as part of settling a political instability brought about by a fall out in smooth relations within a ruling three party coalition.

The SADC mission, facilitated by South Africa’s Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa, ensured a signing of the Maseru Facilitation Declaration by party leaders seeking to restore peace and political normalcy.

The legal notice in the Government Gazette has been brought to the Independent Electoral Commission of Lesotho charged with responsibility to oversee the elections.
