The President of Sri Lanka resigned on 13 July.

Sri Lanka News Portal reported that Sri Lankan President Gotabaya Rajapaksa will step down on July 13.

A senior military source said earlier that Rajapaksa fled his official residence in the capital before footage surfaced of protesters demanding his resignation storming the presidential residence.

Thousands of demonstrators flooded the capital of Sri Lanka. Instead of the planned peaceful march, the demonstrators broke through the police barriers and seized the presidential palace. President Gotabaya Rajapaksa was reportedly evacuated shortly before protesters besieged his home.
