Under Section 3.2 of the constitution there will be an early General Election as the Prime Minister ( El Salvador )has called one. The 31st Parliament closes completely on Thursday 29th of October. Parties and independents have 7 days to submit a manifesto to myself, manifestos much reach me, before 19:00 GMT on the 29th of October, manifestos submitted after this time will not be accepted.

Manifesto Rules
– Manifestos submitted must be less than 600 words.
– Manifestos may not contain more than two image files.
– Manifestos may contain one audio or video file:
a) lasting less than 90 seconds
b) containing less than 200 words (not included in the manifesto word count)
c) not infringing on copyright law
– Manifestos may not contain pictures of, or quotes attributed to, any real-life figure, living or dead, political or otherwise.
– Where a manifesto is received with more than 600 words, the Speaker will cut the manifesto at the 600-word mark.
Any text in a manifesto that is included in an image file counts towards the word limit. A copy of any such text must be sent to me in the TSR text format alongside your manifesto.


Timetable
Thursday 22nd October: Last day to submit new items
Friday 23rd October : Last day for a new reading
Saturday 24th October Last day for a division, all other items withdrawn

Thursday 22nd October: Manifesto submissions open

Parliament will reopen exactly 7 days after verification is complete.

Out of the pram the toys go from the idle half of the government.

Was the CP consulted on this or was it a unilateral action?

The results aren’t declared until verification is complete. After verification there are 7 days to form coalitions, at the end of which parliament opens.

That doesn’t take verification into account, which often takes a day. The result aren’t declared until after that,

Results will inevitably not be able to be declared on day 14 as they'll need verifying. That's considered a CS-mandated change to the GD and happens at every election as you will be well aware.

Results can only be declared by the Speaker after day 14. If verification hasn't happened by day 14, the 21 day period is paused until verification happens.

The Community Staff are not bound by Constitution or GD and therefore the timings in the OP are accurate.

Small tidbit Mr Speaker but please make your OP more fancy for the grand occasion. 'the Prime Minister, Head of the Civil Service and First Lord of the Treasury upon consultation with Her Majesty The Queen has hereby formally requested that parliament be dissolved with immediate effect'. Theatre good sir.

Glory to the Conservative and Unionist Party and its continued dominion.

It has been the case that we wait for verification basically since verification was needed, it has literally years of precedent behind it and is common sense. Just because you have no hope of forming a government doesn't mean you should reduce the time the rest of us need to set one up.

Hopefully verification can occur on the Friday, one of the reasons that today was appropriate.
