This was announced on Thursday by Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa, who is also the Southern African Development Community (SADC) peace mediator for Lesotho.
“His Majesty King Letsie III will reconvene parliament on 17 October 2014. The sitting of parliament will be limited to the passing of a budget and all other related matters regarding the holding of elections,” Deputy President Ramaphosa announced at a press conference held in Maseru.
There will be no motion of no confidence or politicians crossing the floor, said the facilitator.
“National general elections will be held towards the end of February 2015 and on a date to be set by His Majesty,” he said.
