Sri Lankan politics: It is now final, Rajapaksa is out! What next?
-Dr. Abdul Ruff
The final results of the general poll in Srilanka held on August 17 has very eloquently showed that former president Mahinda Rajapaksa is no equal to the incumbent president Sirisena who not only defeated the former strongman for presidency but also drowned him in the Indian Ocean by defeating him elections meant for PM which has now gone to his nominee Ranil Wickremesinghe. Besides, Rajapaksa’s future also looks sealed once for all.
