MPs Resignation Started!

"Fatemeh Haqiqatjou, bottom, adjusts her veil as she makes a speech as Iran's speaker of parliament Mehdi Karrubi, top, writes during a session in Tehran on Monday , Feb. 23, 2004. The parliament accepted the resignation of Haqiqatjou, a reformist lawmaker fighting for women rights, with a majority of votes. Haqiqatjou, is one of about 130 reformist lawmakers who resigned earlier this month to protest mass disqualification of liberal candidates."
Resignation of MPs at this moment has a symbolic meaning for politician. They are going out from sovereignty. Like that were done by Abdollah Noori (previous interior minister) and a close man to Ayatollah Khomeini and many influential authorities. Consider that many of MPs that are going to resign are involve in revolution from tiptoe to their necks. I mean they are completely sunken in the revolution. In the last round they leave. What does it mean?
