‘Probe terror funding accusations’ Bill seeks changes in law of constituencies

KUWAIT CITY, Aug 28: The government has referred three draft laws to the National Assembly, which are for amending the law of constituencies by adding new areas, issuance of a common GCC bylaw regarding substances that deplete the ozone layer and subscribing to Kuwait the additional quota for increasing the fourth public capital of the Islamic Development Bank, reports Al-Jaridah daily quoting informed sources.

They explained that the first draft law proposes amending the boundaries of the constituencies for membership to the National Assembly to add Anjefa area to the First Constituency, Shuwaikh Industrial Area, health area and Al-Nahda area to the Second Constituency, Jaber Al-Ahmad City to the Fourth Constituency and Abu Al-Hassaniya and Abu Fatira areas to the Fifth Constituency. The sources further explained that the second draft law, which was referred to the Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee, is aimed to unify efforts of all Gulf Arab countries to ensure protection from damages to the ozone layer resulting from harmful activities.

They added that the third draft law is to approve the private placement of Kuwait in additional quota increase for the fourth general capital of the Islamic Development Bank.

Meanwhile, MP Dr Yusuf Al- Zalzalah has called HH the Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak to look into the allegation that some people in Kuwait are financing terrorism in Syria and Iraq, reports Al- Rai daily. In a recent press statement, the lawmaker disclosed he finds it strange that the New York Times published such news. He said the US security agencies have provided their Kuwaiti counterparts with information like the names of those suspected of financing terrorism. He stressed the need for the prime minister to issue a directive to clear the name of Kuwait and maintain its status as a secure and safe country.

In another development, the lawmaker underscored the need to implement the proposed establishment of a fund to support small and medium enterprises. He urged the Public Authority for Industry to allocate industrial plots for the young entrepreneurs, considering the youths constitute 60 percent of the Kuwaiti society. He said the government should pay more attention to the needs of the youths for them to greatly contribute to national development. He also asked the legislative and executive authorities to lay down short and long-term strategies to develop several fields to tap the creative potential of the youths.
