MPs come to blows over summoning minister

MPs come to blows over summoning minister

May 06, 2015 - 16:43

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Two Meshrano Jirgainfo-icon members on Wednesday physically clashed over summoning the Information and Culture Minister, a lawmaker said.

The lawmaker, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told Pajhwok Afghan News that the clash took place between Second Deputy Chairman Mohammad Asif Seddiqi and Zalmai Zabuli, the Complaints Commission head at the former’s chamber.

He said the clash occurred after Seddiqi asked Zabuli that why he summoned Jehani to his panel’s meeting without such a decision from the upper house.

Zabuli replied: “I am the head of the complaints commission and have the authority to call anyone. I called Jehani as per the commission’s decision.”

Then Seddiqi entered the chamber of Zabuli and physically clashed with him, with the second deputy chairman receiving minor bruises to his face.

Pajhwok tried to contact the two lawmakers, but failed. However, Senator Abdullah Qarlaq said the two did not clash physically, but exchanged harsh words.
