The showdown between the legislative and judicial branches escalated a notch as the court invalidated all actions taken by the current National Assembly, which includes three opposition lawmakers judges had barred from taking office over an election dispute. The decision declared the three lawmakers and the National Assembly’s leadership in contempt of court and voided the legislature’s decisions for as long as the trio hold their seats.
