Shekiba Hashimi, a member of Afghan Parliament said,” We strongly support the House bill and we do not vote for nominees with dual citizenships”.
After the physical clashes Abdul Rauf Ebrahimi, Speaker of the House asked Mr. Khalil to leave the House till further decision which is going to be made by the House and asked to stop live session.
