Follow Constitution, says Boushehri
KUWAIT CITY, Dec 1: MP Mohammad Al- Mutair has hinted on submitting an interpellation motion against HH the Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Hamad Al-Sabah despite the instruction of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al- Sabah to refrain from taking such a step if the grilling points are beyond the jurisdiction of the premier.
Earlier, the National Assembly agreed to refer the grilling motion submitted by MP Shu’aib Al- Muwaizri against HH the Prime Minister to the Legal and Legislative Affairs Committee for review in order to determine its constitutionality.
Al-Mutair urged Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak to immediately dismiss State Minister for Housing and Services Jinan Boushehri for her failure to deal with the flood crisis, labor demonstrations in Al-Mutla’a and delayed operation of the new terminal building (T4) at Kuwait International Airport; implying that an interpellation will be underway if his demand is not addressed.
In response, Boushehri pointed out that if the MP is adamant on using his constitutional tools, it should be done in accordance with Article 101 of the Constitution; hence, the interpellation must be against Boushehri, not the premier.
Talking about the issues raised by the MP, Boushehri affirmed major maintenance works are underway to repair damages caused by the fl ood, especially in Sabah Al-Ahmad Housing City. She said all concerned contracts are under investigations, even those terminated before she assumed the post.
