Sirisena on Sunday swore in Wickremesinghe, who he’d abruptly fired on Oct. 26 and replaced with former strongman president Mahinda Rajapaksa. "With the issues we have, I am not sure what guarantee we have that we could go on this journey together," Sirisena told a crowd that included Wickremesinghe and other lawmakers. Analysts believe Sirisena originally appointed Rajapaksa to cash in on his enduring popularity, particularly after a party backed by the former strongman defeated the ruling coalition in local elections earlier this year.

President Donald Trump termed the ruling “a big big victory by a highly respected judge” and an alternative path to the long-time Republican goal of repeal-and-replace. “We’ll be able to get great health care,” Trump said Saturday during an unannounced visit to Arlington National Cemetery, where a “Wreaths Across America” holiday wreath-laying event was under way. The decision Friday finding the Affordable Care Act unconstitutional comes at the tail end of a six-week open enrollment period for the program in 2019 and underscores a divide between Republicans who have long sought to invalidate the law and Democrats who fought to keep it in place.
Reed O’Connor, appointed to the federal bench by President George W. Bush, ruled against Barack Obama’s signature health-care law three times, dealing the most serious blow Friday when he declared the entire law unconstitutional and cast uncertainty on insurance coverage for millions of Americans. While the ruling is sure to be appealed all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, it’s a remarkable victory for conservatives who fared poorly in other court challenges to the Affordable Care Act and were further frustrated in 2017 when a Republican-led Congress and President Donald Trump couldn’t muster the votes to abolish Obamacare.

Responding to criticism from his recent trip to Myanmar, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said he's keen to learn about the country's racial tension and human rights atrocities, but it has emerged that both he and Twitter's public policy team ignored an opportunity to connect with a key civic group in the country. A loose group of six companies in Myanmar has engaged with Facebook in a bid to help improve the situation around usage of its services in the country -- often with frustrating results -- and key members of that alliance, including Omidyar-backed accelerator firm Phandeeyar, contacted Dorsey via Twitter DM and emailed the company's public policy contacts when they learned that the CEO was visiting Myanmar. The plan was to arrange a forum to discuss the social media concerns in Myanmar to help Dorsey gain an understanding of life on the ground in one of the world's fastest-growing internet markets.
