Following the recent increase in fuel prices, transport costs and the prices of goods and services have started rising. Fishermen are up in arms against the sudden increase in the price of kerosene by more than double the earlier price and the creation of a coupon system to distribute subsidized kerosene. In the midst the agitation and unrest resulting from this fuel price increase, members of the government have been trying to justify it by saying that fuel costs were higher during the Rajapaksa government. Today the price of a barrel of crude oil is around 70 USD.

The Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lanka (PUCSL), the electricity sector regulator, successfully held a public consultation yesterday (22 March 2018) at Bandaranaike Memorial International Conference Hall (BMICH), on the proposed framework for licensing electricians.

Reports coming in from all corners of the island, indicate that the Sri Lanka PodujanaPeramuna is heading for a historic victory at the local government elections. I wish to express my heartfelt thanks to the voting public of Sri Lanka who have reposed their trust in us, and made this victory possible. The opposition has been able to achieve this victory amidst unprecedented persecution and harassment.
