Wafd Party dismisses two MPs for attending Parliament session

Wafd Party head Al-Sayed al-Bedawy dismissed two MPs from the party and referred another to investigation for attending the People’s Assembly session on Tuesday.

The People’s Assembly met Tuesday in response to a decree from Mohamed Morsy calling on the dissolved assembly to convene. However, a number of members boycotted the session, including 39 Wafd Party MPs.

MPs Hana Abul Gheit and Ahmed Wahdan were dismissed from the party after they failed to comply with the Wafd Party’s directive not to attend the session. The Wafd Party executive council declared that the People’s Assembly is invalid under the decision of the Supreme Constitutional Court.  

The deputy head of the party, Mohamed Abdel Aleem, also attended the session and will be investigated by a party committee.
