Topic Description:

Gotabaya Rajapaksa, a former defence secretary and intelligence officer accused of committing human rights violations, has won Sri Lanka's presidential elections. His main opponent Sajith Premadasa of the ruling United National Party (UNP), conceded defeat. Rajapaksa's win signals the return to power for the controversial family, hailed by many for ending the civil war, but also remembered for brutal acts against minorities and dissidents. Rajapaksa won with more than 52% of the nearly 16 million possible votes, according to final results released by Sri Lanka's election commission. He defeated Sajith Premadasa by about 10 percentage points.
