According to articles published on both Reuters and the Hindu, former defense secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa is the hot favorite to win the presidential election this Saturday.

The article published on Reuters, stated that even though there are no formal opinion polls, former defense secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa is the hot favorite to win the presidential election this Saturday while his chief opponent Sajith Premadasa, is seen to be trailing.

Meanwhile, in an article published in The Hindu, the people are hopeful of Gotabhaya Rajapakse being their future leader. 

The article asserts that the reasons pulling voters towards Gotabaya Rajapakse this time go beyond war “victory”. Some of them are looking for respite from the everyday economic strain they associate with the incumbent government.

The article, further states in most parts of the Southern Province, almost every local, including those supporting Gotabaya Rajapakshe’s main opponent Sajith Premadasa, assert that “a majority will vote for Gotabaya Rajapakshe.”
