The French parliament on Tuesday suspended a ‘left-wing’ lawmaker for two weeks. The lawmaker held up a Palestinian flag, during a ‘heated debate’ over whether France should recognize Palestinian statehood. Sebastien Delogu, a member of parliament representing the radical-left ‘France Unbowed’ (LFI) party (from the southern city of Marseille), stood up with the flag during questions to the government. The speaker of the house, ‘Yael Braun-Pivet’ denounced what she termed as his unacceptable behavior. Lawmakers then voted to suspend him for two weeks and cut his parliamentary allowance by half, for two months.
