‘Major hitches in housing resolved’

KUWAIT CITY, Dec 23: Rapporteur of Housing Affairs Committee MP Rakan Al-Nisf disclosed that the committee is studying proposals to modify the current draft law of tenders to oblige the surveillance and administrative authorities to comply with the period of implementing projects as specified by law, adding those who decline to adhere to the procedures will be referred for investigation, reports Al-Seyassah daily. In a press statement, Al- Nisf said the committee adopted the decision after intensive discussions relating to new developments in housing care and the major obstacles to resolving the problem.

He added the committee had also discussed the procedures and mechanism of floating governmental tenders and reasons behind the delay in approving them. It is worth mentioning the head of Central Tenders Committee Ahmad Al-Kuleib and other officials from State Audit Bureau attended the committee meeting. In a related development, the Development Committee in the Ministers Council and other concerned committees will soon complete studies on projects included in the list of governmental priorities, which were approved by the National Assembly, reports Al-Anba daily quoting sources. Sources revealed State Minister for National Assembly, Planning and Development Affairs Dr Rola Dashti will meet the council immediately after the announcement of the Constitutional Court’s ruling on the petitions against the last parliamentary election results; that is, if the legislature is not annulled.

Sources said the minister will discuss the possibility of holding special meetings to tackle the priorities agreed upon by the executive and legislative authorities. Meanwhile, sources said some MPs have asked heir colleagues to slow down and refrain from submitting interpellation request after MP Saleh Ashoor took a similar step against Minister of Education and Higher Education Dr Nayef Al-Hajraf
