National Assembly Speaker Marzouq Al-Ghanim announced on Wednesday the parliament's approval on the vacancy of MPs Waleed Al-Tabtabae and Jamaan Al-Harbash's seats. Al-Ghanim said during an ordinary session of the parliament that the decision has been made according to article 50 of the electoral law, and article 18 of the assembly's bylaw.

"If anyone has an objection shall raise his hands, and according to the vote results, the assembly announces the vacancy of the seats," he added. The assembly's bylaw's article 18 states, "If, for any reason, a seat in the National Assembly becomes vacant before the end of the term, the vacancy is filled by election within two months from the date on which the Assembly declares the vacancy. The mandate of the new member lasts until the end of that of his predecessor. If the vacancy occurs within six months prior to the expiry of the legislative term of the Assembly, no successor is elected.
