There had been chaotic scenes as lawmakers shoved, tackled and hit one another in a day-long brawl in Taiwan’s parliament.

Daytime scuffles escalated right into a nighttime brawl as lawmakers fought over proposed reforms to the chamber, simply days earlier than President-elect Lai Ching-te takes workplace and not using a legislative majority.

Even earlier than votes began to be solid, some lawmakers screamed at and shoved one another exterior the chamber, earlier than the motion moved onto the ground of parliament itself.

In chaotic scenes, lawmakers surged across the speaker’s seat, some leaping over tables and pulling colleagues to the ground.
