MP Dashti submits draft laws for ‘national unity’ and loans Apply laws against hidden hands: Al-Fadhel

KUWAIT CITY, Dec 21: MP Dr Abdulhameed Dashti was quoted as saying he has submitted a draft law for national unity and controlling discrimination, reports Al-Wasat daily.
On the case of loans, Dashti called it sensitive and needs to be decided on — positively or negatively. He added, the statements of the Minister of Finance do not read well and looked at them as provocative.
He said he has submitted a draft law to establish a public authority to look into the loans of debtors.
However, according to reliable sources the decision of dropping loans or the interests thereon does not lie in the hands of one person. It should be decided in harmony by the government and the National Assembly for the good of the homeland and the citizens, said Al-Rai daily.
The sources clarified there has been no communication among the concerned authorities such as the Central Bank of Kuwait, the Ministry of Finance or commercial banks and stressed on the idea of dropping the interests on loans is not possible at least ‘at this time’.
However, lawmakers have the right to submit what they want as per the rights granted to them by the Constitution.

Moreover, sources said a number of lawmakers including MP Nasser Al-Shimmari are coordinating efforts to hold a parliamentary meeting including all MPs who support the idea of handling loans. They all agree decisions will be taken in the constitutional and legal framework.
Meanwhile, MP Dr Mishari Al-Hosaini has said he will submit a proposal to modify the Law of Constituencies to make them 10 instead of five. He stressed the key goal of this proposal is to put an end to the tribal and sectarian phenomena which is a result of the 5-constituency system.
He said according to his proposal the Jahra governorate will be one constituency represented by five lawmakers. He added, the relative weight of constituencies should be commensurate with population density.
On the other hand, MP Nabil Al-Fadhel has submitted a query to First Deputy Premier, Minister of Interior Sheikh Ahmad Al-Hmoud on the ‘irregularities’ taking place in some residential areas.
He stressed on the necessity to apply laws against hidden hands which are behind chaos such as former MP Waleed Al-Tabtabaei who considers himself a superman and continues to violate the law without being punished.
Will we reach a phase when citizens will have to defend themselves and their residential areas?
