Rajapaksas win majority and TNA loses seats as final results in Sri Lankan elections announced

Updated 17.30 GMT

The Rajapaksa’s Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna's (SLPP) have swept polls across the South on their Sinhala nationalist platform as predicted, whilst the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) lost seats in the North-East, with final results just announced in Sri Lanka’s parliamentary elections.

As results were still being declared Indian prime minister Narendra Modi called Mahinda Rajapaksa to congratulate him on the polls, stating the clan had put in an “impressive electoral performance” according to an official press release. 

“Thank you PM @narendramodi for your congratulatory phone call,” tweeted Rajapaksa earlier. “With the strong support of the people of #SriLanka, I look forward to working with you closely to further enhance the long-standing cooperation between our two countries. Sri Lanka & India are friends & relations.”

Across the North-East, the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) still remains the major party but has lost a significant amount of its vote share, with reports that the party may suffer some high profile losses.

The United National Party (UNP) meanwhile, has captured less than 3% of the island's vote share so far and is faring dismally.  Sajith Premadasa's Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) looks set to be the party of opposition.

We need your support

Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.

Despite the risks, our team on the ground remain committed to providing detailed and accurate reporting of developments in the Tamil homeland, across the island and around the world, as well as providing expert analysis and insight from the Tamil point of view

We need your support in keeping our journalism going. Support our work today.
