Delegation seeks meeting with Amir in bid to reach solution MP criticizes group’s name

KUWAIT CITY, July 26: A number of former MPs, some members of the majority opposition bloc, formed a group called ‘National Rescue Delegation’; aiming to meet His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmed Al-Jaber Al-Sabah to discuss the political state of the country and attempt to reach a solution.
The group includes former MPs Obaid Al-Wasmi, Ahmed Al-Khateeb, Mishary Al-Osaimi, Abdullah Al-Nibari, Hasan Jawhar and Waleed Al-Jari. Current MPs expressed their opinions on the matter, with some describing it as a good initiative; while others described it as absurd due to the name.
MP Abdullah Al-Tamimi accused the group of planning to “break the rule of law in a diplomatic manner.”  He clarified that although he respects the fact the members of this delegation were former MPs, he criticized the name of the so-called delegation.  He said if someone is to hear the name, they would believe the country is in turmoil. But in reality, these former MPs are still and will always be against the one-vote decree, which has been given the status of immunity by the Constitutional Court.
The MP affirmed this ‘delegation’ is keen on bringing back the four- votes system, suggesting changing their name to “the cancellation of one vote delegation.” He wondered why they didn’t form a delegation when the country was knee-deep in political disorder in the last two years, or when their acquaintances got their citizenships revoked and other such situations that will justify the formation.  
A senior official from the Ministry of Communication disclosed that telephone services will be provided to some 17,000 housing units in several new estates early next year, including Sabah Al-Ahmad residential area, Jaber Al-Ahmad, Saad Al-Abdullah, East of Sulaibikhat South Naseem in Jahra, reports Al-Anba daily. The source added that specialized international companies will install about 30 thousand telephone lines in these areas with state of the art services, while the installation and extension of telephone lines (fiber optics) in the aforementioned areas will be completed by October at a cost of nearly 79 million dinars.
