Senegal, The parliament of the West African country of Senegal has been debating with uproar for the past several days. Then, after a woman MP was slapped, the situation escalated to such an extent that the country’s parliament building turned into a war theater for a while.
In fact, during the budget session, opposition MP Masta Sambe approached ruling party MP Amy Daye Nibi and slapped her amid the ruckus. The video of this incident also went viral on social media. After that it started to be discussed all around. Earlier, another woman MP stopped Nibi from coming forward and again threw a chair at Semb.
In this incident between two MPs, other MPs also started fighting with each other. Meanwhile, there was an uproar in the Parliament. The session was adjourned immediately following incidents of MPs fighting, accusing and insulting each other.
Tensions between ruling and opposition politicians have risen since July’s parliamentary elections. In which the ruling party has lost its majority. Meanwhile, President Macky Sale is dreaming of becoming the President for the third time in 2024 amid partial concern.
Sail has refused to say outright whether he is considering running for a third term. The opposition says, this would be a violation of term limits and earlier promises.
Supporters of the 60-year-old Sail argue that the constitutional amendment puts him in line to run for re-election. When Parliament was first convened in September, there was a similar scramble. Meanwhile there was a dispute between the parliamentarians over the leadership of the House.SS1MS
