Six members have been removed from the Egyptian parliament since the promulgation of the Egyptian constitution in 1971. Expulsion in these cases have been based on different grounds. The case chosen here has been based on a member's loud shouting against the president of the country. The significance of this case is the test it presents to the freedom of expression, especially by an M. P. The number of violations of constitutional and legal principles in the proceedings of this case is striking. To start with, the speaker of the house have abandoned his neutrality by ordering investigation of the violation and specifying the procedures to be taken. The start of this case has affected its progress later on. The facts of the case were presented before the Office of the House in such a way as to harm the positon of the M.P. The legislative committee's handling of the case was flawed by a number of violations. The major weakness of the committees’ handling of this case is its 24 Choice of interpretations of several constitutional articles. The committee’s interpretations of articles (96) and (98) are criticised. The conclusion is that the result of the impeachment proceedings in this case were wrong the causes for the unfortunate end are procedural and substantive errors.
