COLOMBO (News 1st) – The official deed of the Sri Jayawardenepura Parliament complex was handed over to the Speaker of Parliament Karu Jayasuriya today (June 20) after a span of 40 years.

The deed was presented by Minister of Land and Parliamentary Reforms Gayantha Karunathilake.

Until now, the land had only a royal edict to claim ownership of the land. This was during the tenure of former President J.R. Jayawardena. Gayantha Karunatilake looked into the matter after he took over the lands ministry.

The 18-hectare land belonging to the 40-year-old parliamentary complex is located in the Sri Jayawardenepura, Maharagama and Kaduwela divisional secretariat areas.
