Perspective on the outcome of Sri Lanka’s 2015 general election, The Hindu, August 19, 2015

“The Sri Lankan electorate has voted to reject polarisation and reinforce the process of democratisation…The new UNP government will have to quickly address a range of concerns from prosecution of corrupt politicians to providing a credible process to address war-time accountability.”

Together, these analytical articles provide a rounded perspective on the significance, potentialities, and hope held by the outcome of Sri Lanka’s 2015 general election.
