Candidate Dakheel refutes any ties with ‘Brotherhood’ Awatef says wants to get involved in nation building

KUWAIT CITY, Nov 13: Yahya Al-Dakheel, candidate of the Third Constituency and general coordinator of the Conservative Bloc says he does not belong to any political bloc, refuting any relations with the Muslim Brotherhood Movement, reports Al-Seyassah daily.

Al-Dakheel added it’s easy to note down his memoirs and posts occupied throughout his career, stressing he earlier had established a youth movement to achieve reform, but the group was dissolved just about a year ago.

Meanwhile, Awatef Al-Qallaf, candidate of the Third Constituency explained she is participating in the coming parliamentary elections because of her desire to get involved in nation building, under the wise leadership of HH the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah.

She stressed the need to work towards a prosperous future, in order to achieve development and prosperity and the goal of restoring Kuwait to its former glory, as pearl of the Gulf region.

For his part, another candidate of the Third Constituency Abdullah Al-Ma’youf stated the coming parliament will become the major partner in Kuwait’s development.

He also said those calling for boycott of the upcoming parliamentary elections suffer from schizophrenia and political bankruptcy.

In an unrelated development, the Islamic Constitutional Movement (ICM) is trying to place some of its devotees inside and outside the oil sector through former lawmakers and officials affiliated to the bloc, in an attempt to activate ministerial decisions in the Ministry of Oil and Kuwait Petroleum Corporation (KPC) and its subsidiaries to control specific leading positions in the oil sector for the welfare of some members.

Sources explained the Minister of Oil Hani Hussein had given instructions to form a committee to select the senior officials and managers to be promoted to managing directors, and they wonder suspicious manner by which the committee was formed.

They noted Chief Executive Officer Farouq Al-Zanki wasn’t included in the committee, and that the act was improper. They want to know the reasons that led to change of the mechanism of forming such committees. It is worth mentioning the committee was formerly headed by CEO of KPC during the tenure of former Oil Minister Dr Mohammed Al-Busairi.
