‘Regional chaos threatens Kuwait security, stability’ MP queries PM move

KUWAIT CITY, Aug 26: MP Dr Mohammad Al-Huwaila affirmed that security agencies should be alert and should take precautionary measures regarding the current regional situation, which is threatening the security of Kuwait and the entire region, reports Al- Seyassah daily. MP Al-Huwaila said the alertness of securitymen, which enabled them to find and arrest suspected robbers who stole from Al-Awadhi Jewelry Shop in the Avenues Mall, instilled confidence among the Kuwaiti citizens of their ability, commending the officers for their quick arrest of the culprits.

Meanwhile, MP Abdullah Al-Turaiji has submitted a parliamentary query to HH the Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Al- Mubarak Al-Sabah, reports Al-Nahar daily.

He said the Prime Minister was lucky to be appointed in the position after the dissolution of the 2009 National Assembly, but he has not been successful in selecting the right people into the Cabinet. He faulted the Prime Minister for appointing some people who contested in the National Assembly elections but could not secure the confidence of the electorate.

Al-Turaiji accused the Minister of Commerce and Industry of causing problems between both authorities through the violation of the Constitution and squandering of the public funds. He asked the Prime Minister whether it is the policy of the government to appoint relatives of lawmakers as advisors in the ministers’ offices to buy their loyalty. He also asked whether the Prime Minister was aware that the Ministry of Commerce and Industry committed a series of violations, alleging that the minister appointed relatives of some lawmakers as advisors and provided them with allowances that exhaust the public funds.

Meanwhile, a serious clash may break out between the executive and legislative authorities if HH the Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Al- Mubarak Al-Sabah fails to replace at least five ministers in a soon-to-beheld Cabinet reshuffle, reports Al-Watan Arabic daily quoting an informed source.

He revealed that some lawmakers have been preparing documents to grill certain ministers, while many lawmakers are waiting for the parliament to conclude elections into various committees to ensure their membership into the committees they prefer.

The latter are cautious to avoid any situation that would cause the government to jeopardize their desire of becoming members of the committees of their choice. He cited an example of such a scenario, which is the current grilling procedures being carried out by MP Abdullah Al-Turaiji against the Minister of Commerce and Industry and Acting Minister of Education and Higher Education Abdulmohsen Al-Mudej. He accused the minister of violating the Constitution and sought clarification about whether the Prime Minister was aware of it or not.
