Another candidate from the Fifth Constituency Mohammad Al-Otaibi said that cooperation between the executive branch and legislation branch was key to improve the country in various fields.

Al-Otaibi added that another main topic he will focus on will be the issue of housing and the importance of utilizing vast lands through engaging the private sector in building cities.

Meanwhile, third Constituency candidate for parliament election 2012 Abeer Al-Fawaz called Friday for ensuring women have full housing rights, amid a continuous procrastinating policy regarding these rights which thus make Kuwaiti women feeling depressed.

Al-Fawaz said in a press statement, that throughout the years women waited for promises made but not kept by both the government and parliament to having a residence, noting that disregarding women’s rights needs the legislative authority’s focus.

Women can get a KD 45,000 housing loan from the local Saving and Credit Bank while married men with the same applicant status receive KD 70,000, Al-Fawaz noted that this was an example of inequality to women.
