Sri Lankans vote in test for ex-president Rajapaksa

Sri Lankans have voted in parliamentary elections with results expected on Tuesday.

    Sri Lankans have voted in parliamentary elections that could see the former president make a political comeback.
     
    The country's ex-president, Mahinda Rajapaksa, is running for prime minister. He was in power for nine years as president until his defeat in January. 

    The results of this election are not only expected to determine the political futures of a few Sri Lankan politicians but also the direction of the country.
