KUWAIT CITY, Aug 20: MP Faisal Al- Duwaisan has demanded the government to revoke the citizenship of all who obtained it illegally irrespective of whether they support or oppose the policies of the government, reports Al-Seyassah daily.

During a press conference that was held on Monday in the National Assembly, he said the citizenship of some opposition members was not withdrawn in the past because they did not create chaos in the country. He indicated that the coming legislative term will witness arguments and heated discussions about a number of pending files and suspended cases, adding that the parliament will not agree to negotiate with the government on several cases including the strategic alternative to the salary and organizational structures.

MP Al-Duwaisan said the government usually opts to suspend or adjourn cases, revealing that grilling requests will be definitely submitted against the government in the coming term. He revealed that the government submitted some controversial proposals such as those on the security pact and the law of collecting weapons, which was rejected by a group in the society.

He stressed that the electronic media law must be unified and it should include articles for organizing the social media, affirming that cyber crimes play a substantial role in aggravating negative situations in a country. Regarding the housing case, MP Al-Duwaisan said he hoped the State Minister for Housing Affairs will prove the statement he issued during press conferences about allocating 12,000 houses every year.

Meanwhile, MP Saleh Ashour has submitted a number of queries to the Deputy Premier, Minister of Interior and Acting Minister of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs Sheikh Mohammad Al-Khalid Al-Sabah regarding administrative corruption and financial depletion in various sectors as well as the accusations of promoting extremist ideologies that were issued against some preachers, reports Al- Seyassah daily. He asked the minister to provide him with the list of conferences, seminars and forums that the ministry held inside and outside Kuwait since 2005. MP Ashour asked Sheikh Mohammad to provide him with the names of the participants and their countries as well as the financial costs incurred for holding the conferences and the financial awards given to the guests.

In addition, he requested for the names of the preachers and Imams who have been reciting the Holy Quran and giving sermons in mosques since 2005. He said he wanted details about the costs incurred for hosting guest preachers and building Quranic centers, inquiring whether there are demands for building more of such centers. Based on statements issued by some officials of the ministry, MP Ashour asked the minister if a committee will be formed for supervising Jafari mosques, demanding for the decision of forming the committee and the names of its members.

MP Abdullah Al-Maayouf has forwarded questions to Minister of Social Affairs and Labor and State Minister for Planning and Development Affairs Hend Al- Subaih on the number and names of committees formed to look into the cases referred to the Family Custodianship Department, as well as the skills and academic qualifications of the members of these committees, reports Al-Seyassah daily.

He asked about the number of suicide and death cases, reasons behind these cases, most recent suicide case and laws applied in this regard. He inquired about the number of special cases in family care homes like those suffering from mental and psychological disorders. He asked the minister to update him on the procedures taken in dealing with each case. He also asked about the procedures for accepting donations and the amount collected so far. In a related development, a parliamentarian was recently quoted as saying the South Saad Al- Abdullah housing project will solve 50 percent of the problem of housing, which is considered one of the most important problems faced by the citizens, reports Al- Shahed daily.

This is especially in the face of rising property prices in the country, said the MP, and praised the role of Parliament in the passage of housing laws and the speed with which the government intends to solve the issue.
