The Rumble in the Parliament Jungle

As promised, we give you the Rumble in the Parliament Jungle: Okay, so it’s no Mayweather vs. Pacquiao (which was equally disappointing), but it will have to do (watch, runtime: 1:52). As we noted yesterday, the scuffle (more like after school at the mall) was caused over a clause in the National Elections Act which mandates judicial supervision of the new national elections regulator. As cooler heads clearly could not prevail, the article was sent back to the House Legislative Committee, Ahram Gate reports. We apologize for the bad quality of the video, but House Speaker Ali Abdel Aal’s phobia of the media was behind this. As he was only but a toddler when the wheel was invented, he didn’t think someone would have a smartphone handy during the closed session.
