(MENAFN - Arab Times) A number of lawmakers including Parliament Speaker Ali Al-Rashid criticized the statements issued by MPs Hussain Al-Qallaf and Sa'adoun Hamad through which they bid HH the Amir to dissolve the current National Assembly, reports Al-Annahar daily.
In a press statement issued inside the National Assembly, Hamad indicated that the dissolution of the current parliament will fortify the one-vote system as well as grant former MPs, who had boycotted the last elections, a chance to participate in the elections particularly after they realize that the one-vote system has been validated constitutionally.
He stressed that the Kuwaiti nation was surprised the grilling requests were suspended, revealing that they were hesitant to suspend the grilling request against the minister of oil.
Meanwhile, MP Abdulhameed Dashti said, "I did not expect a lawmaker to make such a speech. However, Hamad, you can submit your resignation if you want and elections will be held to appoint an MP instead of you."
He affirmed that the previously implemented schemes and plots will not be executed this time, indicating that they will hold press conferences within weeks to reveal the troublemakers who provoke such chaos in the country.
Regarding Al-Qallaf's annou-ncement of his intention to submit a grilling request against HH the Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak at the start of the coming phase, MP Saod Al-Teraiji insisted that it is unacceptable and unreasonable to instigate political conflict against HH the Prime Minister over any problem.
He said, "We respect our colleague Al-Qallaf but we want to know the reason why he wants to grill the premier", adding that the decision to suspend the grilling requests was taken based on the parliamentary conviction to grant the government a chance to start executing its projects without getting involved in any political tension.
