MTI Strategic Reflections

What’s new in Parliament?

  • Two of Sri Lanka’s oldest political parties have been decimated and on the verge of extinction?
  • Meanwhile, two ‘new political parties’ have got 85% of the total votes.
  • But the ‘intel inside’ suggests these two new parties have been ‘transplanted’ from the two ‘legacy machines’.
  • Then, what’s really new this time? 37% of the MPs are new.
  • Let’s hope these new ‘intel inside’ are not crippled by dysfunctional ‘motherboards’.
