Patrick Assirvaden and Osman Mahomed expelled…

On Tuesday, Patrick Assirvaden was asked to leave the hemicycle when Shakeel Mohamed took the floor during the budget debates.

This was for challenging a point of law made by the Minister of Finance. The latter disagreed with Shakeel Mohamed’s claim that the word inflation had not been used in the budget speech.

Osman Mahomed, also a Labour Party MP, was also expelled earlier.

He was challenging the Speaker’s decision to allow majority MP Teenah Jutton to speak in praise of the government during the budget debates, when the previous day he was not allowed to speak on social housing.

The Speaker then expelled Osman Mahomed.
