Ukraine’s parliament was marred with a brawl on June 15 after MP Volodymyr Parasyuk tried to snatch a microphone from Dmitry Kolesnikov.
Senate public accounts committee was violently disrupted after Nairobi senator Mike Sonko engaged in a physical fight with Nairobi governor Evans Kidero.
It all began as a verbal exchange started by Sonko who accused the governor of ‘murder’ but soon degenerated into a physical fight forcing the committee to abruptly adjourn. The media present there were all thrown out as orderlies escorted Sonko out of parliament buildings.
And with the minutes before:
Lawmakers in the Turkish parliament have once more engaged in a fistfight over a controversial government proposal for stripping the legislators of their immunity from prosecution.
Television broadcasts showed Monday lawmakers hurling water bottles and other objects across a hall where members of the constitutional committee of the Turkish parliament were meeting to discuss a government-backed proposal to strip MPs of their immunity from prosecution.
The main brawl was between lawmakers from the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) and those from the pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democracy Party (HDP).
AKP’s proposal, which has stirred huge controversy in the media, could pave the way for the trial of several pro-Kurdish legislators on terror-related charges. It came after AKP’s main figure, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, accused HDP of being an arm of the outlawed Kurdish militants.
