According to the notification, elections will be held on April 25 and the new Parliament will have its first session on May 14. The political parties and independent candidates can file nominations to contest the poll between March 12 and 19. Over 16.2 million voters are eligible to vote to elect 196 members under proportional representation and a further 29 members on national cumulative votes of each party based on proportional representation.
 President Rajapaksa, who named his elder brother and former strongman Mahinda Rajapaksa as the prime minister of the caretaker cabinet in December, earlier said he wanted two-thirds seats in the 225-member assembly.
