Sri Lanka appointed a new prime minister on May 12, 2022, as its embattled president sought a way out of the country's most severe economic crisis since independence. The worsening situation has sparked widespread protests. Ranil Wickremesinghe is a political veteran who has been prime minister of the island nation five times before. Opponents fear he is unfit for the job and some protesters have said his appointment is not enough to quell the unrest.
