Sri Lanka Post Election: Examining Policies, Priorities and Possibilities

January 30, 2015
By Centre for Land Warfare Studies
  1. President Sirisena’s victory was a result of approximate equal division of Sinhala votes and majority backing by the ethnic and religious minorities without any conditions or demands. 

  2. The new president is committed to policy reforms ie democratization, devolution of power to the provinces, reduction of the executive powers of the president, reduction of military role in governance, demilitarization, rule of law, independent judiciary, appointment of independent commissions, media freedom, transparency in governance and equal rights to all ethnic communities. National reconciliation based on the manifesto would restore balance in society and eliminate the grievances of the ethnic minorities. 

  3. The new dispensation is well disposed towards India, and will develop better relations based on its manifesto which implies balanced international relations as well. It is expected that the Tamil fishermen issue will be amicably settled by the new governments in India and Sri Lanka. 

  4. India and Sri Lanka need to increase cooperation in security and economic fields
