In­te­rior Min­istry as­sures seam­less elec­tion process

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

KUWAIT: All pro­ce­dures will be in place to en­sure that the elec­tion process will pro­ceed smoothly and flaw­lessly, Deputy Prime Min­is­ter and Min­is­ter of In­te­rior Sheikh Mo­ham­mad Khaled Al-Ha­mad Al-Sabah said yes­ter­day. Those re­marks were in­cluded in a state­ment is­sued by the Min­istry of In­te­rior (MoI) af­ter Sheikh Mo­ham­mad Al-Khaled presided over a broad se­cu­rity meet­ing, at­tended by the MoI’s Un­der­sec­re­tary Lieu­tenant Gen­eral Suleiman AlFa­had and sev­eral of his as­sis­tants.

More­over, the state­ment noted that Sheikh Mo­ham­mad Al-Khaled un­der­scored the need to have this se­cu­rity plan ger­mane to elec­tions slated for Novem­ber 26, come to fruition. Ad­dress­ing se­cu­rity forces, he said that they “should work closely” with the elec­torate, in­clud­ing the el­derly and those with dis­abil­i­ties, to al­low them the lib­erty to prac­tice their demo­cratic rights. The Min­is­ter of In­te­rior also high­lighted the need to have a fool­proof plan, adding that the MoI “will not com­pro­mise” as “volatile re­gional con­di­tions call for in­creased alert.”

He also noted that he is “con­fi­dent in the ca­pa­bil­i­ties of se­cu­rity forces” to carry out their mis­sion of en­sur­ing that the elec­tion process will go off with­out a hitch. Mean­while, the MoI’s Un­der­sec­re­tary ex­plained the in­tri­ca­cies of this se­cu­rity plan, not­ing that the full force of law will be in ef­fect and no one would be ex­empt.
