2019 Sri Lanka Presidential Election

The Eighth Presidential Election was held on November 16, 2019 under the framework of the 1978 Constitution Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka. The election was successful, largely peaceful and orderly. The Election Commission of Sri Lanka (EC) needs to be particularly acknowledged for delivering on its constitutional mandate to ensure an electoral process that has drawn confidence of people and political parties alike. The resounding success of the election was due to the acceptance of the election outcome by all contesting parties in a welcome demonstration of democratic maturity, yielding a quick and swift transfer of power.

Through the deployment of international election observers throughout the country, the mission witnessed how the Sri Lankan people emerged and participated in deciding the future of their country. This report presents ANFREL’s final assessment of the electoral process, which was crafted with internationally recognized democratic election norms and principles in mind.
