The House of Representatives deleted, from their Facebook page, the live broadcast of the Parliament's session that was held Tuesday which witnessed quarrels and fights between a number of MPs.

The dome had turned into a ‘wrestling ring’ after a number of MPs fought during the session held under the dome.

After the clashes, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Abdel Karim Al-Dughmi, decided to postpone the session until Thursday, Dec. 30, at 10:30am.

The session was scheduled to discuss the draft amendment to the Jordanian Constitution for the year 2021, after its approval by the Legal Committee.

However, clashes and verbal altercations erupted during a debate on an amendment that included adding the female noun for a Jordanian citizen, to a chapter in the constitution guaranteeing equal rights of all citizens.

Following that, several MPs angrily disputed the amendment, saying it is "useless."
