Description: The answer to Sri Lanka’s current political crisis is complex. The split between United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) and United National Party (UNP) turned into a struggle for power between the Sri Lankan President Sirisena, the leader of UPFA alliance comprising theSri Lanka Freedom Party(SLFP) and the UNP party leader Ranil wikckramsinghe. In the day following 26th October 2018, power in Sri Lanka seemed to reside in confusing display after the new Premier Rajapaksha was sworn in by President Sirisena.
