Ireland faces May 24 election after president dissolves parliament

Prime Minister Bertie Ahern announced Sunday that Ireland's next general election will be May 24 and vowed to extend his 10-year run in power.
Ahern spoke after meeting Ireland's symbolic head of state, President Mary McAleese, who signed a document dissolving the parliament for a four-week election campaign. McAleese said the newly elected parliament would convene on June 14 to elect a new government.
