Sri Lankan lawmakers voted in appointing acting President Ranil Wickremesinghe as the new president on Wednesday, hoping his long experience in government can help pull the country out of the current economic and political crisis.

The six-time prime minister won 134 votes in the 225-member parliament. Dinesh Gunawardena has also been sworn in as Sri Lanka’s new prime minister.
