German term or phrase: Auflösung des Bundestages
From a text about the German Bundespräsident. "Zu seinen Aufgaben zählen u.a. die Ernennung und Entlassung des Bundeskanzlers oder der Bundesminister sowie die Auflösung des Bundestages." I looked at the website of the Bundespräsident in English, but couldn't find anything that seems to correspond to this.
