South Korea’s National Assembly has passed a bill that supposedly will prevent future outbreaks of violence that has made the lawmakers at times the laughingstock of the world:
South Korea’s parliament approved a key revision to the National Assembly Act on Wednesday, raising hopes the new measure will help end distasteful scenes of lawmakers scuffling with each other to push forward their demands over contentious issues.
The anti-clash bill was passed in a vote of 127 to 48, with 17 abstentions. [Yonhap]
As I have always said, if these clowns are allowed to get away with this violence with only small fines to show for it, they will continue to do it. We will have to wait and see if this bill makes any difference.
By the way if I was a Korean lawmaker this is who my aid would be.
