‘Govt not to refer Gulf security pact to Constitutional Court’ MP proposes naming street after Sheikh Sabah Al-Nasser

KUWAIT CITY, April 19: The Gulf Security Agreement stirred up the MPs for several reasons in the recent past, which prompted Speaker of the National Assembly Marzouq Al-Ghanim to disclose that the agreement will not be discussed in the current parliamentary term.

According to sources, the government will not refer the agreement to the Constitutional Court, contrary to the allegation of some MPs. Instead, the government affirmed that the agreement will be tabled for discussion in the next parliamentary term, and when the day comes; there is a high probability the agreement will be approved.

This is despite claims made by MPs that the agreement contains numerous violations to the Constitution; hence, it must be referred to the Constitutional Court. On another subject, a number of MPs recently met MPs Riyadh Al- Adsani and Abdulkareem Al-Kandari in an attempt to persuade the latter to refrain from submitting an interpellation request against HH the Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak on the alleged donations to the Shiite community.

Sources revealed the meeting was unplanned and took place on the sidelines of daily parliamentary work last week. Sources said the MPs asserted that the interpellation planned by their two colleagues will not yield the desired results. Sources added pursuing this subject will only cause more tension, which is what political parties outside the Parliament are hoping to achieve and it has nothing to do with reform or the protection of public funds.

Sources revealed the MPs pointed out that the interpellation, which is scheduled for submission this week, will fail and it will not go pass the discussion phase as the majority of the Assembly members are against it, similar to what happened in the last interpellation of the premier.

Meanwhile, MP Talal Al-Jalal has proposed naming a street after the late Sheikh Sabah Al-Nasser Al-Saood in recognition of his accomplishments and honorable deeds, reports Al- Seyassah daily. Al-Jalal pointed out Sheikh Sabah Al-Nasser was among those who fought for Kuwait during the Iraqi invasion; not to mention his remarkable contributions to the development of the country. He said the people will not forget him and his name will remain in their memories.
