Shafaq News/ MP Faiq Sheikh Ali, said that the parliament vote to cancel the privileges of officials and reforms are political decisions to "absorb the resentment."
"I used to be honest with my people and never deceive them," Sheikh Ali said in a tweet.
As a man of law, I address my people and tell them:
Do not be so happy with the decisions of the parliament today, because they are to absorb resentment, and have no legal force .
Laws of privileges and powers are not repealed or amended only by laws .. Not political decisions!
You will discover later the truth !
