The final word in our sections on “The Promise of January 8th” celebrates the enthusiasm and optimism of the Sri Lankan voter who used their ballots to express their desire for change. Therefore, this issue also includes the key findings of the “Political Weather Analysis” survey that SSA conducted in June 2015, two months prior to the General Election. The findings capture the views and hopes of average Sri Lankans about the possibilities that had opened up because of democratic change taking place in the country.
