Al-Dabous eyes speaker post Al-Enezi to run for deputy speaker

KUWAIT CITY, Dec 3: MP Esam Al-Dabous has announced his plan to run for the Parliament speaker post, while refuting allegations that the new National Assembly will not last a year, reports Al-Seyassah daily.
Al-Dabous pointed out the speakership is open to any lawmaker who feels he has the ability to manage parliamentary affairs despite the difficult phase the country is currently going through. He admitted it is hard to predict what will happen in the coming days, especially since the new parliamentarians have yet to take their oath.

Meanwhile, MP Askar Al-Enzi stressed the importance of strong coordination between the legislative and executive authorities to better serve the nation. He said the next government must take appropriate decisions and shoulder its responsibility in pushing the wheels of development forward. He also unveiled his plan to run for the position of deputy speaker, hoping he wins the trust of his colleagues.  

On the other hand, MP Nawaf Al-Feza has asked the Higher Judiciary Council to give him a copy of the judicial independence law to pave the way for the submission of a proposal in this regard during the first session of the Parliament. He asserted the new legislature will look into the interpretations of the law in accordance with the Constitution.

Al-Feza said the ‘discharge’ draft bill includes stipulations prohibiting a lawmaker from benefiting from his parliamentary membership commercially or financially. He asserted the new Parliament will address issues concerning loans as a gift to the Kuwaitis. In another development, Judge Faisal Al-Murshid said the Constitutional Court has not received any petition against the Dec 2 election results.

This came after the National Democratic Alliance members — Abdullah Al-Roumi, Adel Al-Saraawi, Marzouq Al-Ghanim and Aseel Al-Awadhi — issued a joint press statement that they submitted a petition challenging the election results.
