KUWAIT CITY, Jan 6: Constitutional expert Professor Muhammad Al-Fili has clarified that the Constitution does not specify the period for the new prime minister to form his government, but it stipulates the accomplishment of this task as soon as possible. He pointed out that the dissolution of the Assembly is not necessary in the event a new government is formed, but a new government is needed for a newly elected legislature. He reiterated that a new parliamentary term requires the formation of a new government, but the appointment of a new prime minister does not require a new legislature; hence, there is no need to dissolve the Assembly.

In another development, MP Fahd Al-Masoud confirmed holding a meeting with Assembly Speaker Ahmed Al-Saadoun who promised to revise the decision to terminate expatriate employees at the Assembly TV. He said he explained to Al-Saadoun that these employees are hardworking and some of them greatly contributed to the establishment of the Assembly TV. He also highlighted the humanitarian aspect of the issue, indicating these employees have financial obligations, and that they must provide for their families. He recommended granting them a grace period of six months to find new jobs or be reinstated to their posts at the Assembly TV in case a decision in this regard is issued. Moreover, the parliamentary Environment, Food, and Water Security Affairs Committee on Sunday will discuss the participation of Kuwait in the Doha Agriculture Exhibition 2023.
