Grand Duke to Dissolve Parliament

After a short time of consideration and another few meetings with Luxembourg's political leaders, Grand Duke Henri announced on Friday that he has decided that he will dissolve the Chamber of Deputies on 7 October, so that new elections can take place on 20 October. The Grand Duke will sign the necessary documents in the days to come.

With his decision, Grand Duke Henri is following the recommendations of a parliamentary constitutional committee and not the State Council which preferred an immediate dismissal of parliament due to the current rift between government and parliament expressing that a delayed dismissal wouldn't reflect the spirit of the constitution.
