According to the Extraordinary gazette notification signed by the Secretary to the President Udaya R. Seneviratne, the Parliament will be reconvened on 14th November at 10:00 a.m.

Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka, I, Maithripala Sirisena, President, do by this Proclamation summon Parliament to meet

President Sirisena prorogued the parliament on October 27 until November 16 after he sacked the unity government's Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and appointed former President Mahinda Rajapaksa as the Prime Minister of a government led by the UPFA.
President's decision to prorogue the parliament has been seen as a move to entice opposition parliamentarians to support the new prime minister.
