The most annoying thing is that MCAs are supposed to be the watchdogs of our resources and leadership's actions. If we deny them the freedom of decision making, will we become successful as a country? #ElachiImpeachmentChaos pic.twitter.com/5ZoSoDk3ee

This is the MCAs second attempt to remove her from office since 2018. The MCAs have accused her of abuse of office, divisive leadership, and disrespecting other office holders in the assembly.
