Sri Lanka's parliament voted overwhelmingly Tuesday to restore a two-term limit for presidents and revive independent bodies to manage key institutions such as the police and the judiciary.

A total of 215 out of the 225 lawmakers approved a constitutional amendment which restores presidential term limits, reversing a change by former strongman Mahinda Rajapakse who scrapped them after being re-elected in 2010.
