Sri Lanka‘s President Maithripala Sirisena has been accused of violating the country’s constitution.
Now, Sirisena has dissolved parliament and called for snap elections to be held in January.
During all this time, Wickremesinghe has refused to leave the prime minister’s residence.
The president’s opponents are set to challenge his actions at the Supreme Court on Monday.
