His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah sent Wednesday a cable of congratulations to Minister of Information and Minister of State for Youth Affairs Mohammad Al-Jabri.

His Highness the Amir hailed the minister’s distinguished performance in response to the recent interpellation at Parliament. His Highness also lauded MPs’ respected and sophisticated democratic practices while grilling the minister.

The National Assembly held a special session on the no-confidence motion Wednesday, during which 34 members voted against the motion, 12 voted in favor and two abstained. The minister voiced gratitude to the Assembly for their renewed confidence in him, promising to work diligently and exert more efforts to better serve the country.

Meanwhile, Assembly Speaker Marzouq Al-Ghanim congratulated Al-Jabri for surviving the no-confidence motion. He also praised the proponents of the grilling – MPs Adel Al-Damkhi, Riyad Al-Damkhi and Mohammed Al-Dallaal – as well as all those who spoke up during the session for the refined display of Kuwaiti democratic practice, especially during the Holy Month of Ramadan.

Several recommendations regarding the interpellation were submitted after voting on the no-confidence motion as follows:

■ Al-Jabri should submit a report from the Public Authority for Agriculture Affairs and Fish Resources (PAAAFR) on food security before the end of September 
■ The State Audit Bureau (SAB) should submit a report by the end of October on the violations and comments of authorities mentioned in interpellation 
■ The parliamentary Public Funds Protection Committee should review articles of the interpellation and submit its report by the beginning of the next legislative term During deliberations on the motion, MPs Yousef Al-Fadala and Riyad Al-Adsani spoke in support of the motion while MPs Sadoun Hammaad and Awda Al-Ruwai’e spoke against it.

The MPs, who support the motion, asserted that the minister must be held accountable for his performance; considering the increase in the number of violations in every authority under his supervision.

They stated that reports from SAB confirmed the ineffectiveness of supervision over PAAAFR, made worse by the minister’s failure to respond to numerous points in his interpellation particularly the allocation of agricultural plots, mismanagement of the Information Ministry which led to loss of KD 30 million income and influx of employees. On the other hand, the two objecting MPs claimed that at least six MPs who signed the motion did so for electoral gain which has no political weight on the matter at hand. They also pointed out several unconstitutional articles in the interpellation such as the influx of employees, as the Civil Service Commission is the entity responsible for governmental employment, not the minister.

They also questioned the validity of the interpellation itself, since notices were regarded as violations and the parliamentary committee investigating the allocation of agricultural plots has yet to conclude its report.

On the other hand, 22 MPs submitted a request for a special session to discuss the General Pardon Bill on the sidelines of Wednesday’s session. Al-Ghanim affirmed that invitations will be distributed soon; but since the request was for this coming Sunday, the session might not take place
