‘Critical level of blood reserve indication of mismanagement’ MP hopes govt will continue path of cooperation

KUWAIT CITY, Aug 10: The announcement of Kuwait’s Central Blood Bank (KCBB) that its blood reserve has reached the critical level is an indication of mismanagement, says MP Faris Al-Otaibi. The lawmaker called on Health Minister Dr Ali Al- Obeidi to question the blood bank manager to know the reason behind the shortage of blood supply, asserting that he will closely follow up the issue. He pointed out the minister must be aware of the seriousness of the situation and find appropriate solutions in coordination with top ministry officials.

Meanwhile, parliamentary Educational Affairs Committee Chairman MP Humoud Al- Hamdan disclosed they had a meeting with acting Minister of Education and Minister of Higher Education Abdul-Mohsen Al-Modej recently, during which they discussed the opening of schools for all grade levels in Sabah Al-Ahmad and appointment of a director for Jaber Al- Ahmad University. Al-Hamdan added the minister also vowed to address issues related to the accreditation of certificates obtained from universities in the Philippines, India, Slovakia and Greece.

He also affirmed that the panel will soon look into the report of the Higher Education Ministry on the progress of Shadadiya University project in the last six months.

On another issue, Financial and Economic Affairs Committee Chairman MP Faisal Al Shaya has confirmed that most of the ministers fully cooperated with the Parliament and its committees in the last legislative round as manifested in the enactment of 31 laws which were referred to the government. He said this is in addition to a number of remarkable achievements, such as the approval of international and regional agreements.

He stressed positive cooperation on the part of the government in the next legislative round does not mean the legislature will be lax in performing its role; particularly in the enforcement of laws, implementation of genuine reforms and overcoming obstacles. He hopes the government continues to follow this path, as well as apply the Constitution and laws on everyone to guarantee equality among various segments of the Kuwaiti society. He said the strict application of laws pleases everyone, except those who are corrupt because they regard this step as a hindrance to their personal interests.
