Some Afghan lawmakers on their Tuesday session called on President Karzai to step down amid growing tensions between executive, judiciary and legislative branches of the government.
Parliamentarians claimed that President Karzai is sick and has lost the capability to govern the nation.
Some lawmakers warned that if President Karzai refuses to step down, they will implement the article 69 of the constitution.
The article 69 of the Afghan constitution says president accused of crimes against humanity and national treason could be held responsible by one third of the members of the House of Representative that will follow his resignation in a grand council, Loya Jirga.
Government taking a silence stance against Pakistan missile attacks into Afghanistan and neglecting the demands of parliamentarians have left the House of Representatives infuriated.
"The country is in a very sensitive situation. Lots of things will happen this year from security handover, Core Group summit to conclusion of US-Afghan strategic partnership agreement," Mohammad Shahir Rafiq, an Afghan MP, said. "President Karzai has fallen sick and fails to govern the nation. He should respect the Afghan nation and step down."
Another Afghan MP, Samiullah Samimi, said: "The time has come for the implementation of article 69 of the constitution. The President wants to drag the country to instability, not stability.
Tuesday session of lawmakers ended up with violence between two female legislators.
But President Karzai said new tensions between parliament and justice institutions are because democracy is young in the country.
"This is a normal process of democracy in Afghanistan and every nation that steps into a democratic system should go through some challenges to reach maturity," President Karzai said.
President Karzai has previously accused Pakistan of firing 470 missiles into Afghanistan which was later denied by officials in Islamabad.
