Escalating Sri Lankan Crisis

President Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s refusal to resign is contributing to the economic situation in Sri Lanka, which is getting worse by the minute. He made Ranil Wickremesinghe, the prime minister, the interim president after Rajapaksa fled to Male, the Maldives, on Wednesday with his wife and two staff members, further upsetting the demonstrators.

According to reports, President Gotabaya Rajapaksa is looking for a private plane to take him from the Maldives to Singapore. Speaker Abeywardene stated that he has yet to resign.

According to a report by News First Lanka, Gotabaya Rajapaksa was instructed by Sri Lankan Speaker Mahinda Yapa Abeywardena on Thursday that he must submit his letter of resignation as President as soon as possible or else he will take additional measures to have him removed from office.

So far, protesters have taken control of the state broadcaster, the PM’s residence, office, and palace. Because Rajapaksa personally selected Wickremesinghe, protesters claimed, they did not want him in charge of the nation’s affairs.

Wickremesinghe’s authority is rejected by the Sri Lankan opposition, who accuses him of acting in the capacity of president. Sajith Premadasa, the leader of the opposition, referred to the government’s current policies as “complete anarchy.”

Julie Chung, the US ambassador to Sri Lanka, meantime, called on the island nation’s political elite to secure a peaceful transfer of power and urged them to uphold the rule of law. The island nation’s situation is being closely monitored, but India, according to its foreign minister S. Jaishankar, would not meddle in its internal affairs.
