MPs propose setting up temporary panels
MP Thamer Al-Suwaitt announced filing requests in collaboration with a number of lawmakers to a number to form temporary parliamentary committees for human rights, people with special needs, negative phenomena and illegal residents (bedoons). Suwaiit stressed that these committees are of great significance in order to discuss very important issues, adding that the National Assembly will discuss the requests and vote on them during tomorrow’s session.
Meanwhile, chairman of the parliament’s budgets and final statement committee MP Adnan Abdulsamad said yesterday that the committee met to discuss its working agenda during the current term. He added that the committee decided to increase its meetings in order to study state departments’ final statements as well as the State Audit Bureau’s report for the fiscal year 2015-2016. The committee reviewed the results of its activities during the previous term. It also approved a bill on adjusting the assessment of Kuwait Petroleum Corporation (KPC) and its subsidiary companies on revenues and expenses for the fiscal year 2016-2017.
