Wafd MP wants candidate Hariry referred to ethics committee

Wafd Party MP Ahmed Attalah has called for presidential candidate Abul Ezz al-Hariry to be referred to Parliament’s ethics committee for saying on a satellite TV channel that Parliament practices “political striptease.”

People’s Assembly Speaker Saad al-Katatny has promised to investigate the matter.

Wasat Party MP Essam Sultan, however, objected to an investigation, saying Parliament is not above criticism.

“This is the price of public service,” he said.
