A number of opposition MPs demanded a government interpellation over victims of fuel rise demonstrations and the harassment on journalists. They also demanded interpellation of the government over the big rise in commodity prices as the rise in the fuel price is disproportionate.

Many Mps said that this government has abandoned its people and has lost touch with reason. They demand the release all those detained in the demonstrations.

Opposition Mp Mansour al-zandani from Islah party said that opposition MPs demanded that a fact finding committee should be formed to investigate on the transgressions against press and journalists. The last of these were the abduction of Al-wasat chief editor, the robbery of Al-nida news paper and Associated press and detention of journalist Khalid Humadi correspondent of the Al-quds news paper.
