Grilling motions in the past
The first interpellation ever filed in the National Assembly was in the 1960s, when late lawmaker Mohammed Ahmed Al-Rasheed grilled the late minister of social affairs and labor Abdullah Meshari AlRoudhan. The motion was over cancelling the term ‘first category’ used to describe houses within Kuwait City’s boundaries, which were bought by the government. The grilling also inquired about allocating these houses to those who needed temporary accommodation until all the houses were bought and then demolished to pave the way for new projects.
The third inquiry on the grilling motion’s list was about the reasons why the applications filed to get these houses by those with limited income outnumbered the ones that were already available. The session was held in the minister’s office instead of the Assembly hall and it was attended by the housing minister, myself and Rasheed, and the matter was settled within an hour. What is wrong with grilling motions filed now? Have they become void of good intentions?
