May 1, 2014, 9:03 am

National Assembly (parliament) Speaker Marzouq Al-Ghanim said here on Wednesday no official resignation requests have been made by any member of parliament so far.

Speaking to reporters following a parliament session, the speaker said should any MP come up with such a request, then he would handle the matter as per the constitution and the assembly's charter.

"Up till now, I have not received any official resignation request. Even if this happens, I will handle it in line with the constitution and the (National Assembly) charter," he said.

However, Al-Ghanim said he respects the desire of any member of parliament to resign. It was reported earlier in the day that two members of the National Assembly had announced their resignation from the assembly.
