Head of the parliament's media committee Samee'a al-Ghallab denied the news circulated by some media channels that Parliament Speaker Mohamed al-Halbousi has granted female MPs a total of 25 million dinars ($21,008), on the occasion of Women's Day.

Ghallab said that such "fabricated" news are issued by some "agendas" with the aim of "undermining trust between  the people and the Council of Representatives."

She also affirmed that she will work on directing relevant authorities to "hold accountable satellite channels and other media that publish false news in order to provoke clamor and chaos."
