Electoral system of Bermuda
Under section 49(2) of the Bermuda Constitution Order 1968, the Parliament of Bermuda must be dissolved by the Governor five years after its first meeting following the last election (unless the Premier advises the Governor to dissolve parliament sooner). Under section 51(1) of the Constitution, a general election must be held no later than three months after a dissolution. The first meeting of the current parliament took place on 8 February 2013, meaning parliament would have needed to be dissolved before midnight on 7 February 2018 for an election to take place before 7 May 2018.
However, after the ruling One Bermuda Alliance lost its majority in the House of Assembly with the resignation of two MPs to sit as independents, the opposition Progressive Labour Party proposed a vote of no-confidence which was scheduled for 9 June 2017. However, Premier Michael Dunkley pre-empted the vote on 8 June 2017 by asking the Governor to dissolve the House and call an election for 18 July 2017
