50 killed since 1983!

Sri Lanka's Parliament was re-located in Jayawardenepura Kotte in 1983. Since then approximately 500 members have had the privilege of occupying a seat in its august Chamber.

Of this about 50 have died in office – most of them violently. This would be a record for any legislature anywhere in the world.
