KUWAIT CITY, Sept 17: The “Group 80” has de­manded the ne­ces­sity of pre­serv­ing the unity of Kuwaiti so­ci­ety, es­pe­cially dur­ing this pe­riod that is wit­ness­ing many po­lit­i­cal dis­putes and cases of par­ti­san­ship, re­ports Al-Qabas daily.

A del­e­ga­tion from the group, which in­cluded its Gen­eral Co­or­di­na­tor Adel Al-Zawawi, said this dur­ing their re­cent visit to the daily where they met the Edi­tor-in-Chief Walid Ab­dul­latif Al-Nisf and had a lengthy dis­cus­sion con­cern­ing the na­tional is­sues and the as­pi­ra­tions of the fu­ture Kuwait.

The mem­bers of the group stressed the need to pre­serve the Kuwaiti iden­tity, and to com­mit to im­ple­ment­ing the law re­gard­ing grant­ing Kuwaiti na­tion­al­ity.

They in­sisted that the Kuwaiti iden­tity must al­ways re­main a na­tional pri­or­ity.

The mem­bers did not hide their fears about the fact that the out­comes of the much-awaited par­lia­men­tary elec­tions would not achieve the as­pi­ra­tions of the cit­i­zens. How­ever, they af­firmed their hope and op­ti­mism for the up­com­ing change.

They called for the need to up­hold na­tional prin­ci­ples and pro­tect

Kuwait’s his­tory from dis­tor­tion.

The mem­bers ac­knowl­edged the re­cent attack on the group, jus­ti­fy­ing it as a nor­mal phe­nom­e­non sparked by dif­fer­ent ten­den­cies and agen­das. How­ever, they af­firmed that they are stead­fast in the face of this attack and are able to over­come all dif­fi­cul­ties. Re­gard­ing the file of cor­rup­tion, they in­sisted on the im­por­tance for the con­cerned au­thor­i­ties to con­tinue their ef­forts to erad­i­cate this dev­as­tat­ing scourge from the so­ci­ety once and for all, and to hold those re­spon­si­ble for the cor­rup­tion ac­count­able of their ac­tions, re­gard­less of their po­si­tions or sta­tus.
