Berenger (MMM - top left) and Mohamed (Labour - bottom left) have both been suspended for four sessions

Opposition MP Paul Bérenger has been expelled from Parliament and suspended for the next four sessions, “unless he tenders apology,” National Assembly Speaker Sooroojdev Phokeer, ruled on December 10.

Berenger, the leader of the MMM – and also the longest serving MP – was expelled after he called the Speaker a ‘fool’ and other names.

Labour MP Shakeel Mohamed was also suspended for four sessions for alleged “disorderly conduct” following a motion by Deputy PM Steven Obeegadoo.

“You are a goalkeeper and a very bad one. You should be ashamed of yourself”, he was quoted as having told the Speaker.

Mohamed, known to be very vocal against the Speaker’s alleged lack of independence during Parliamentary works, was suspended for three sessions in August 2020 and for four sessions in November 2020.
