Kuwait parliament: Grilling HH Premier unconstitutional
February 7, 2019, 8:49 am

The Kuwaiti parliament on Wednesday approved a report by the parliamentary committee of legal and legislative affairs, stipulating as unconstitutional the interpellation motion filed against His Highness the Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Al­Mubarak Al­Hamad Al­Sabah by MP Shuaib Al­Muwaizri. Forty­one members of the assembly voted in favor of the commission report, 16 disapproved and three abstained, out of the present 60 lawmakers.

Upon the MPs' rejection of the report, the topic was omitted from the session agenda. MP Al­Muwaizri had submitted the motion, charging His Highness the prime minister with "failure of the state ministries and departments in coping with catastrophes and facing crises."

The assembly, on November 27, agreed to submit the case to the commission, which said in its relevant report that the grilling bid was not based on constitutional grounds and contradicted the Constitution articles 100, 123 and 127.

The inquiry essentially targets executive activities that fall within executive jurisdictions of some ministries and relevant departments and institutionsÍž therefore each concerned minister must be questioned about acts within limits of his (her) powers.
