(Last Updated On: June 19, 2019)

Angry lawmakers on Wednesday engaged in physical clashes after some lawmakers wanted Mir Rahman Rahmani to assume his position as the house speaker.

Footage released on social media shows that MPs are breaking the chair and desk of the house speaker.

According to Ariana News correspondent at the parliament, at least two lawmakers were injured in the clashes.

More than a month ago, lawmakers in the Afghan parliament divided after the interim speaker of the House announced Mir Rahman Rahmani, an MP from Parwan province, as the winner at the end of an election.

His rival, Kamal Naser Osuli, an MP from Khost province, refused to accept the decision.

The impasse continued for a long time while several committees were formed to resolve the issue but all efforts had no breakthrough.
