Sri Lankans' Confidence in Government Shaky Before Attacks

News that Sri Lanka's government knew but failed to heed warnings about possible attacks ahead of the deadly Easter Sunday bombings will likely only further test Sri Lankans' already fragile confidence in their national government.

Amid ongoing political infighting that some officials admit may have played a role in the failure to prevent the attacks, Sri Lankans' confidence in their government has been lower in the past two years than at any time in the past decade. Fifty-eight percent of Sri Lankans expressed confidence in their national government in 2018.

Line graph. Sri Lankans’ confidence in their national government was lower in 2017 and 2018 than at any point in past decade.
