Parliament to look into a no-confidence motion on labor Minister tomorrow
January 30, 2018, 3:00 pm

The Kuwaiti Parliament will hold tomorrow a special session to look into the casting of a no-confidence vote against the Minister of Social Affairs, Labour, and Minister of State for Economic Affairs Hind Al-Subeeh. National Assembly Speaker Marzouq Ali Al-Ghanem said last week, after the Minister's grilling session, that an inquiry of no-confidence motion was submitted against Minister Al-Subeeh, which was presented by 10 Members of Parliament (MPs).

According to article number 101 of the Kuwaiti Constitution, and article number 144 of the Parliament bylaw, "the Parliament is not allowed to issue a decision regarding the grilling inquiry before seven days of presenting it", thus the voting would be postponed to a special session to take place next Wednesday on January 31.

"Every Minister is responsible to the National Assembly for the affairs of his ministry. If the Assembly passes a vote of no confidence against a Minister, he is considered to have resigned his office as from the date of the vote of no confidence and shall immediately submit his formal resignation.

The question of confidence in a Minister may not be raised except upon his request or upon a demand signed by ten members, following a debate on an interpellation addressed to him.

The Assembly may not make its decision upon such a request before the lapse of seven days from the presentation thereof," said article number 101 of the Kuwaiti Constitution. Meanwhile, article 144 of the Parliament's bylaw stated "the no-confidence of a Minister would be conducted by a majority voting of the MPs, excluding the ministers, as the ministers are not allowed to take part in the no-confidence voting of a minister, even though they would be of the Parliaments elected members, and the parliament is not allowed to issue a decision on the inquiry before seven days of presenting it." The Parliament discussed during its ordinary session last Tuesday and the grilling presented by three MPS to Al-Subeeh, consisting of five sections.
