The 12 members of the parliament that were declared unseated by Elections Commission (EC) and the parliament have been obstructed from entering the parliament building by the police on Wednesday.
When the 12 MPs arrived near the parliament building, police had barricaded the whole area, obstructing their entry.
The MPs showed their cards to the police in an attempt to enter the parliament building, however police did not allow them entrance. The MPs repeatedly asked them to provide a legal reason why they cannot enter the parliament building, stating that the actions of the police was obstructing their legal duty.
The 12 MPs had previously also attempted to enter the parliament building on several occasions, but the security forces had prevented them from entering and had taken them outside the parliament premises.
The 12 members went to the parliament today because they believe that none of the Supreme Court verdicts regarding them state that they are unseated.
In the verdict issued on July 25, Supreme Court stated that the cases filed by the 12 MPs should be separately reviewed by the bench after which a decision can be reached.
Supreme Court said this on July 25, after revoking their February 1 ruling which stated that the 12 MPs have not lost their seats.
