No Comments

Sri Lanka‘s parliament convened on Saturday to begin the process of electing a new president, as a shipment of fuel arrived to provide some relief to the crisis-stricken country.

This comes after former president Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s resignation was accepted by parliament on Friday. Rajapaksa had fled to Singapore via the Maldives to escape anti-government protesters who had occupied his official residence and offices.
