Men in suits and ties are waving at each other. Kill-punching and kicking each other. All this happened in the Parliament of Maldives. This incident of fighting took place on Sunday during the discussion on the approval of the cabinet of the government led by the country’s President Mohamed Muijju.
In a video that has gone viral on social media, an MP can be seen being pushed from the Speaker’s podium by some MPs. Unable to control the rhythm, he was falling to the floor. At that time two people pulled him up.
Another MP stood on the speaker’s platform and shouted at the three in retaliation. But he could not do much good. Three others on the stage pushed him down. At this time, he fell on the floor with another person.
A little later he came towards the stage again and tried to pull someone down by the waist. But at this time he was stopped by others. Another MP was seen blowing his whistle continuously to stop the ruckus. The fight took place between MPs from the opposition Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP) and Mohamed Muijzu’s People’s National Congress (PNC).
