The results of the first phase of the parliament’s elections, in addition to the results of the second phase, showed the end of the parliamentary session of a number of prominent representatives on January 9, 2021, which is the period during which the current parliament’s session ends, without completing their membership in the new parliament.
The National Elections Commission, headed by Counselor Lashin Ibrahim, will announce the official results of the Galthani phase elections to the House of Representatives no later than November 15.
And according to the constitution and the law, immunity continues with those MPs, who lost or did not contest the House of Representatives elections, until January 9, 2021, after which their immunity is withdrawn.
The immunity prevented any criminal measures taken against any of its members in matters of felony and misdemeanor, whether at the stage of investigation or referral to trial, without prior permission from the Council in each of them. In other than the session of the Council, the permission of the Council’s office must be taken to take any of these measures, and the Council shall be notified at the first session of the action taken in this regard, except in the case of flagrante delicto.
