The House of Representatives had voted on the decision to punish Awaysha after he was referred to Parliament’s Legal Committee for insulting Ziyadat, Lower House Speaker Ahmad Al-Safadi said.

Safadi apologized to the minister on behalf of Parliament and the representatives, stressing that MPs should not insult ministers, and vice versa.

Parliament has an internal legal system, and follows the Constitution and a Code of Conduct, and it is not permissible for any deputy to insult a member of the government, nor for a government official to insult a representative, he said.
