Parliament’s administrative committee said on Sunday the seven ministers dismissed by MPs recently must stop work immediately.
Abdul Raouf Anami, the committee’s secretary, said government’s decision to refer the matter to the Supreme Court for interpretation is interfering with the authority of parliament.
One month ago MPs dismissed seven ministers over under-spending of their development budget after a vote of no confidence.
Government however referred the matter to the Supreme Court to interpret article 92 of the constitution – which relates to the dismissal of ministers by parliament.
But the Supreme Court has not yet ruled and the ministers have continued to work, albeit in an acting minister capacity.
