Mahinda Rajapaksa takes oath as Sri Lankan Prime Minister

Sri Lanka's former president Mahinda Rajapaksa was sworn in on Sunday as the country's new prime minister at a historic Buddhist temple, days after his party won a landslide victory in the General Election.rnThe 74-year-old Sri Lanka People's Party leader was administered the oath of office for the ninth Parliament by his younger brother and President Gotabaya Rajapaksa. Mahinda Rajapaksa completed 50 years of parliamentary politics in July this year. He was elected as a Member of Parliament at the young age of 24 in 1970. He has since been elected President twice and has been appointed Prime Minister thrice.
