(MENAFN - Arab Times) MPAbdulhameed Dashti blames what he described as 'unseen powers' for manipulating results of the parliamentary elections to ruin the relationship between the government and the National Assembly, reports Al-Rai daily. In an interview on Al-Rai TV, MP Dashti said he was targeted by powers that played key role in destroying the electoral system, because they needed specific individuals to implement their plots, adding "I was prompted to submit a proposal on the first day I resumed parliamentary activity to prevent repetition of the negative phenomenon in future." He indicated the current 'official' government does not interfere with the parliamentary affairs, although the unseen government spares no effort to control the system. He noted the one-vote system has brought relative stability and also improved the structure of the parliament.

In an unrelated development, MP Nabil Al-Fadhel has launched a scathing attack against the Muslim Brotherhood, particularly its branch in Kuwait, saying the members of Kuwait's Brotherhood Movement exploited the Arab spring which, according to him, didn't begin in Tunisia but Kuwait, as the word 'Leave' was initially launched in Kuwait by a member of the group. He criticized the performance of the opposition and refused the idea of initiating dialogue apologized for harm brought to certain individuals on their account.

He justified his membership in the recently formed parliamentary Negative Phenomena Committee owing to the prevalence of bribery, career negligence, receiving salary without working and taking private vacations upon government's money, indicating such negative phenomena should be sternly confronted. For his part, MP Hamdan Al- Azmi affirmed that the committee members will not enter peoples' homes to pursue them, as some individuals recommend.

He explained the committee will study violations and the negative phenomena in society and shed light on issues such as corruption, drugs and homosexuality. He reaffirmed that several youths have perished as a result of drug abuse, violence and fighting with weapons in the commercial complexes. He reiterated the situation necessitates adopting serious stances to deal with, while the committee is tasked with studying the negative phenomena in order to find appropriate solutions to the trend, which is alien to the Kuwaiti society.
