Showdown looms between legislators, minister
Speaker Abdul Rauf Ibrahimi announced the lower house decision, saying the date for summons would be firmed up by heads of different parliamentary panels.
Asked to appear before the assembly and answer legislators’ queries on his recent remarks today, the minister failed to turn up -- something that angered the MPs.
Over the last four months, the minister said, public representatives had inundated him with 15,200 applications. The ministerial utterances have drawn angry reactions from both houses, which slammed his remarks an insult to lawmakers.
