“The party’s landslide victory in the February 2018 local elections was testament to its popularity, and indicates strong anti-incumbent sentiment. Tensions within the ruling coalition, and inefficient policymaking will make it difficult for either the UNP or the SLFP to regain public confidence,” the report said.
