KUWAIT: Interpellation is an MP’s constitutional right and any criticism that would contribute in reform is welcomed, Kuwaiti Minister of Social Affairs and Labor and Minister of State for Planning and Development Affairs Hind Al-Subeeh said late Thursday. Al-Subaih made the remarks to reporters on the backdrop of reports of a grilling motion to be presented by MP Mohammad Tana in the next legislative term.

MP Tana would not have come forward with the motion if it was not seeking reform, Al-Subaih noted, calling on the lawmaker to reveal any data or evidence on alleged corruption cases in the ministry of social affairs. This all came during the Minister’s attendance of a reception held earlier at the Moroccan embassy to commemorate the 16th anniversary of King Mohammad VI ascending the throne of his country. — KUNA
