All nine provincial councils will stand dissolved from October 8, 2019 when the term of the Uva Provincial Council comes to an end on Monday October 7, 2019.   

The term of the other provincial councils were dissolved in 2018 and in 2019.   Accordingly the term of the Northern Provincial Council came to an end on October 25 2018, the Central Province on October 8 2018, North Western Province on October 10 2018, Sabaragamuwa on September 26 2018, Eastern Province on September 30th 2018, North Central Province October 1 2018, Southern Province on April 10 2019, while the term of the Western Provincial Council came to an end on April 21 2019. The Uva Province will enter into the final week of its term from next Monday, October 1 2019.
