However, Peninsula TV pointed out that Victor Marinha was accepted only when President Gota Baya Rajapaka invited a number of political parties, including Sri Lanka's biggest opposition party. "The leaders, they all rejected the national economic crisis.

Sagala Ratnayaka, a Sri Lanka unified Kuomintang national organizer, said that when "no one accepts this challenge", Victorma Sinda agreed to serve as the Prime Minister. He also said, "Now is not When the good time of Prime Minister Sri Lanka, this will become the most difficult task of Victormaxinha. "

Policy selection center think tank Bhavani Fonseka believes that Victor Masinger is appointed as the Prime Minister who will not terminate the protests for several weeks. "This appointment does not bring the protesters what the protesters want The primary appeal of the protesters is to let Gotapabaya Rajapaksa resign. "

The BBC pointed out that although Victor Marinha has served as the Prime Minister many times, he has not been able to fulfill his term. In the last election, the unified Kuomintang barely obtained a parliamentary seat (a total of 255 seats in the Sri Lanka Parliament), and Victor Masinger became the only representative of the party in the parliament. It is reported that one of the main reasons for people who don't like Victor Marinha is that he has a close relationship with the Rajapaksa family.

Corporal Bishop, Malcolm Ranjith, said, "people want an upright person, not a person who has repeatedly defeated politically."

Affected by factors such as the epidemic, Sri Lanka is facing the worst economic crisis since 1948 independence. Under the influence of lack of foreign exchange, shortage of materials, high prices, and tight power supply, since the beginning of April this year, the protests that the current president has stepped down has become more and more intensive. After more than a month of peaceful demonstration, this protest was upgraded to a violent conflict on May 9th. To alleviate the situation, former Prime Minister Maxinda Rajapaksa announced his resignation that day.

However, the move did not calm the riots. The situation gradually improved until the Sri Lanka Ministry of Defense released the "local gun decision" on the 10th. As of press time, the country's riots have killed at least 9 people and more than 300 people were injured.
