Nauru's political crisis continues with MPs again boycotting Parliament on Thursday.

For the second time this week the legislature lacked a quorum.

But the President, Sprent Dabwido, released a dissolution notice that will come into force automatically on Thursday next week if the next scheduled meeting, on Tuesday, fails to draw in enough MPs.

A Nauru government spokesperson says if Parliament is dissolved an early election would be held on May the 25th.
