Ahmadi’s refusal to attend a briefing session in the lower house forced the MPs to suspend his authorities effective from Monday, 13 Januar 2020. Rahman Rahmani, Speaker of the Parliament, said. “From today on, we do not recognize Ajmal Ahmadi as the minister of industry and commerce. His endorsement on any contract will be considered a crime.”

 However, a spokesperson for the Industry and Commerce Ministry said they have been responsive enough to the parliament. He further added, “The parliament can reject or approve the budget as a whole but (suspending) a part of the budget is not the authority of the MPs.”(20200114)
