The political crisis in Sri Lanka is assessed by the People’s Liberation Front (JVP) leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake as ‘a moment for an alternate party’.

Fresh elections are scheduled for January 2019 following a political crisis between the major political camps both claiming for power in Sri Lanka. President Sirisena dissolved Parliament last week and snap elections are expected for early January. While one camp is represented by President Sirisena and his nominee Rajapaksa as Prime Minister, on the other hand there is the opposition of Wickremeshinge who called the move to dissolve parliament as unconstitutional. The political crisis was discussed by People’s Liberation Front (Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna) leader and MP Anura Kumara Dissanayake in an interview.
