Awazem chief slammed over his call for others to boycott polls Need to develop healthcare: ‘5th’ candidate

KUWAIT CITY, Nov 24: Nobody doubts the allegiance of Awazem clan and its chief Sheikh Falah Jami’e, who is among the prominent figures in Kuwait, but his political view remains his sole right, reports Al-Anba daily quoting Fifth Constituency candidate Firas Khorsheed as saying.

He added it’s the choice of Sheikh Jami’e to join the opposition to boycott the upcoming elections as part of his political freedom, but using his influence to call for others to boycott the process and to verbally attack those who have decided to participate to withdraw from elections is unacceptable, given that HH the Amir has called on citizens to get involved in serving the nation, and allegiance to HH the Amir comes first.

He said it’s unbecoming of Awazem chief to issue hate speeches and sectarian gestures in an attempt to attain personal political objectives, indicating this act is least expected of him.

Khorsheed called upon the members of Awazem clan and the rest of the nation to avoid taking negative stances, and to steer clear of political escalations and sectarianism to be able to shape Kuwait’s future through the ballot.

Meanwhile, candidate of the Fifth Constituency Mubarak Al-Husseiyan Al-Dosari has said the need to develop healthcare in the country due to growing population, prevalent chronic diseases, and rising pollution with its effects on environment and human health-citing Umm Hayman area, reports Al-Anba daily.

Al-Dosari indicated the value and significance of adopting and implementing constructive ideas and thoughts to raise the level of performance in the health sector.

He called for the establishment of specialized hospitals and health centers to bring together doctors in their various specialties, and unifying the cost of medical facilities across the GCC countries, while benefiting from the expertise of other countries.

He noted the draw back in health services in the country in general and Fifth Constituency in particular requires serious measures by the relevant authorities, in order to alleviate the sufferings of people.

He is of the view that many people in Kuwait are avoiding the hospitals due to inadequate heath services, so the next parliament must deal with the issue as a matter of urgency.

Meanwhile, Fifth Constituency candidate for parliament election 2012 Samira Al-Shatti said on Saturday that one of her top priorities in this campaign is to tackle issues related to human resource, women, and youth.

Al-Shatti said, in a statement to KUNA, that she was also keen on work of the retiree issues, illegal residents’, and empowering issues related to equality in societies.

The candidate also expressed hope that the country will regain its natural leading position in development and prosperity.

Meanwhile, also Fifth Constituency candidate Salman Al-Attar, asserted, in a similar statement to KUNA, on the importance of strengthening rule of law, dialogue particularly in the upcoming period.

Al-Attar added that recent tension between the executive branch and legislative branch delayed the cycle of development and in turn affected all citizens and Kuwait society.

The candidate stressed that his campaign will mainly focus on giving youths the opportunity to develop and thrive their society in all areas.
