Nine Out of Ten Sri Lankans Think Rajapaksas Should Leave Politics – Groundviews

The survey findings show that an overwhelming majority of Sri Lankans have been affected by the current crisis. Eighty eight percent of Sri Lankans claim that either they or a member from their immediate family have had to stand in queues to obtain essential items such as gas, fuel, milk powder, fertiliser and other basic goods during the past one month. Nine out of ten people claim that either his or her income or the income of a member from their immediate family has been affected as a result of the economic crisis.

The survey findings also reveal how this crisis has awakened public consciousness on democratic citizenship. Close to half of Sri Lankans – men and women equally – have taken part in at least one of the protest campaigns against those who are responsible for the plight of the country.
