Sri Lanka’s anti-government demonstrators on Thursday decided to vacate some of the iconic administrative buildings, including the President’s House and the Prime Minister’s Office, they have been occupying since April 9 demanding president Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s resignation.

On July 9, protesters occupied President Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s presidential palace and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe’s private house. The Prime Minister’s Office was overrun on Wednesday.
