7/8/2020 12:29
        Sri Lanka's powerful Rajapaksa brothers secured a landslide victory in the parliamentary election, giving them the two-thirds majority of seats required to make constitutional changes, according to results released Friday.
        
        Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa is likely to be sworn in the same position by his younger brother, President Gotabaya Rajapaksa, after the vote that could strengthen dynastic rule in the Indian Ocean island nation.
        
        The Rajapaksas' Sri Lanka People's Front won 145 seats in the 225-member Parliament while its main opponent obtained only 54 seats, the election commission's results showed. A party representing ethnic minority Tamils won 10 seats, and 16 others were split among 12 small parties.
