GET REAL with Mahieash Johnney | Episode 08 | #TheNumbersGame

A discussion on the up coming Presidential election. We ask the question whether in a crowded candidate field can any candidate surpass the required 50% + 1 vote threshold? And in case they cannot then what would happen, how will the winner be selected, and will that person do command the true mandate of the people.

Expert panel for this discussion is Rohana Hettiarachchie – Executive Director for People Action for a Free & Fair Election (PAFFREL) & Gehan Gunathilake – Research Director at Verité Research.
