Sri Lankan MPs have elected prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe as the country's new president, despite his unpopularity with the public, defeating his main rival for the job Dullus Alahapperuma by 134 votes to 82. Mr Wickremesinghe faces the task of leading the country out of its economic collapse and restoring public order after months of mass protests. Sri Lanka's ex-president Gotabaya Rajapaksa fled the country last week. Please subscribe HERE http://bit.ly/1rbfUog #SriLanka #BBCNews
