His Highness the Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Al- Mubarak Al-Hamad Al-Sabah said that security is a key challenge and if it is restored, this will lead to stability and consequently to an economic development. This came in an interview by His Highness the Premier with the National Assembly’s TV station on Monday.

His Highness the Premier added that parliament prioritizes health and housing issues, indicating that this was adopted by the executive authority. His Highness the Prime Minister stressed that His Highness the Amir’s vision on the “one person, one vote” system aims to provide an equal opportunity to all the country’s segments in running for Parliament. His Highness the Prime Minister noted that the system helped many tribes and categories to be elected as MPs at the parliament.

Kuwait Parliament consists of 50 members who represent five constituencies, 10 each. His Highness the Prime Minister said that dealing with economic hardships should not be at the expense of citizens and is a core responsibility of the nation. His Highness the Prime Minister added that wasted electricity and water is a serious issue and that “sacrifices should be made to put an end to the squander.”

Moreover, he cited other issues that have been shrouded in corruption, including the allowances to national delegations sent abroad and government budgets. Speaking on development in Kuwait, His Highness the Prime Minister said there has been tangible progress as a slew of infrastructure projects have popped up as of late.

His Highness Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak has stressed that His Highness the Amir’s vison on the “one person, one vote” system aims to provide an equal opportunity to all the country’s segments in running for Parliament.

His Highness the Prime Minister noted that the system helped many tribes and categories be elected as MPs at the Parliament. Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak said that Kuwaiti youth have amassed accomplishments in sports and education, which is a testament to their desire to attain further success. His Highness the Prime Minister noted that he keeps abreast of what circulates on social media, saying that all political leaders should be open to criticism.

On the government’s relationship with the National Assembly, His Highness the Prime Minister said that the aim is to “establish a relationship founded on trust and we have been fortunate to maintain cordial ties with Parliament Speakers.” Meanwhile, Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak said that the process of appointing ministers is not an easy one and all those chosen are deemed fit for the position. His Highness the Prime Minister said that the army was not ready for conscription when he was serving as Minister of Defense. “As a result, I called for reconsidering compulsory military service. The army needed a numerical intensity, but not by this way … .

“The armed forces are not attracted by many as it is a tiring job. If a member makes a mistake, he will face a military trial,” His Highness the premier said. His Highness the Prime Minister stressed that he sought to provide incentives to soldiers and officers when he was serving as Minister of Defense. The Premier added that “the armed forces have progressed greatly and ground forces have become strong.” The premier said that Ministry of Defense during his tenure was supported by 10 billion, but did not specify it they were in Kuwaiti Dinars or US Dollars, emphasizing that the Kuwaiti army is defensive in accordance with the Constitution, and carries out trainings with armies of a number of Western and Arab countries to share expertise.

“We have Peninsula Shield Forces,” he added. His Highness the Premier Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak stressed that the waves of the so-called Arab Spring were “illusion” as His Highness the Amir said during the last Arab Summit in Jordan. His Highness the Premier made the statement during an interview with National Assembly’s TV station on Monday, adding that “our Arab world was in chaos which affected nations.” The so-called Arab Spring have created several crises in many countries, in addition to the displacements of millions of people. Hundreds of thousands were killed and so many others were wounded in these waves. Terrorism has disseminated intensively in the aftermath of the revolutions that broke out in the Arab countries.
