In Sri Lanka, 70% of people believe the Executive Presidency should be eliminated. According to Verité Research’s June 2022 syndicated survey, 70% of the people of the nation believes that the executive president should be eliminated.
Only 15% of respondents thought the Executive Presidency should remain in place. The remaining 15% either refused to express an opinion or had a variety of different viewpoints (such as decreasing the powers rather than abolishing them).
Across all age categories, the distribution of opinions was quite consistent. Over 80% of respondents in the Southern, Eastern, and Northern Provinces agreed that the Executive Presidency should be eliminated.
The survey was carried out by Verité Research as a component of their syndicated survey tool.
Additionally, this tool gives other organizations the chance to poll Sri Lankans’ opinions.
The June 2022 poll is based on 1,052 Sri Lankan adults’ responses from an island-wide, nationally representative sample.
The sample and methods were created to guarantee that the error margin at a 95% confidence level would be less than 3%.
Vanguard Survey (Pvt) Ltd. served as the polling partner.
