Newly-elected MPs take oath on Monday

KUWAIT CITY, June 28: The Secretariat General of the National Assembly has confirmed the attendance of newly-elected lawmakers Ahmed Al-Qudaibi, Ahmed Lari, Faris Al-Otaibi, Mohammed Al-Rashidi and Abdullah Al-Mayouf in the parliamentary session slated for Monday to take their oath. The secretariat clarified the new lawmakers will also attend Sunday’s session to get the keys to their offices and cars, in addition to their work telephones.

The new MPs will automatically become members of parliamentary committees to fill positions left vacant due to the resignation of former MPs Riyadh Al-Adsani, Abdulkareem Al-Kandari, Safa Al-Hashem, Hussain Al-Quwean and Ali Al-Rashid. Some incumbent MPs have recommended that Lari should take the vacant position in the Legal and Legislative Affairs Committee, Al-Qudaibi in the Budget and Final Accounts Committee, Al-Otaibi in the Health Committee, Al-Mayouf in the Foreign Affairs Committee, and Al-Rashidi in one of the investigative committees.

Meanwhile, sources revealed Musallam Al-Barak cannot ignore nor refuse summon of the Public Prosecution to appear for investigation on Tuesday on the alleged bank account issue and accusations hurled at the judiciary.

This came after Al-Barak issued a state-ment rejecting summon of detectives last week - an option he cannot take when it comes to Public Prosecution’s summon. In case he refuses, the prosecution will issue an arrest warrant; thereby, making him a man wanted by law. In another story, MP Yaqoub Al-Sanei submitted a query to Minister of Commerce and industry Abdulmohsen Al-Madaaj regarding the wood and porcelain junkyard.

He wants to know the reasons for not relocating the junkyard like the car junkyard, considering its impact on the environment and public health is more dangerous than the car junkyard. Al-Sanei explained that when the Parliament pushed for relocation of the car junkyard, the reason was its negative impact. He hopes the government will continue the motion and relocate other structures deemed harmful to public health and the environment.
