A familiar name in Sri Lankan politics is back in charge.
Former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa has been declared the winner of Saturday’s presidential vote.
His closest rival, Sajith Premadasa, conceded defeat as early results put Rajapaksa at more than the 50 percent mark needed to avoid a second count.
Al Jazeera’s Bernard Smith reports from Colombo.
