MEHWAR: Rifts Over House Speaker Remain Unsolved
Although the disagreements over the election of the parliament speaker have remained unsolved, the MPs on Tuesday after a discussion announced that the house will be closed until the end of the Eid al-Fitr holidays.
Nearly two weeks ago, the new MPs voted for electing the new speaker of the parliament and the administrative board, but the process turned controversial after rifts between the two sides.
The leading nominee Mir Rahman Rahmani was announced as speaker of the house by the former interim speaker after the poll, but the decision was not accepted by his rival Kamal Nasir Usuli who claimed the election was full of fraud.
In this episode of Mehwar, host Sadaf Amiri discusses the topic with Ghulam Hussain Nasiri MP and Tawab Danish, member of Afghanistan lawyers association.
