The Delhi Assembly was dissolved on Wednesday, paving the way for fresh elections that will end the political hibernation since the AAP government fell in February.

A notification issued by the home ministry said that President Pranab Mukherjee has dissolved the "Legislative Assembly of the National Capital Territory of Delhi with immediate effect" on November 4.

The Union Cabinet had on Tuesday recommended the dissolution of the assembly following recommendation of LG Najeeb Jung after talks on Monday with BJP, Congress and AAP which expressed inability to form government and sought fresh mandate.

While the fresh elections may be held early next year, the process for the November 25 by-elections to three constituencies, for which last date of nominations is Wednesday, was revoked by the Election Commission.
