KUWAIT: Parliamentary sources said MP Riyadh Al-Adasani is preparing a new grilling of His Highness the Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Sabah in the upcoming term. This grilling will be the second in the coming term after the grilling of Interior Minister Sheikh Khaled Al-Jarrah Al-Sabah, which he is also preparing, expected to be tabled before the start of the term so it can be discussed during the opening session at the end of October.

The sources said Adasani will submit his grilling motion of the premier after the legislative committee’s report on the constitutionality of the grilling motion filed by MP Abdulkarim Al-Kandari, which he submitted in the previous term. The government asked it to be referred to the legislative committee to discuss its constitutionality.

Meanwhile sources revealed that the enrolment of a batch of bedoons in the military was postponed until January, in anticipation of the National Assembly approving a civil rights law for illegal residents to be discussed in November. Sources said the accepted batch includes more than 1,000 bedoons who are children of military men and those with 1965 census records. They have already undergone medical examinations and submitted their registration papers at their workplaces.

The sources said all those who were accepted hold unexpired security IDs issued by the central department for illegal residents, which a must for admittance. They said bedoon children of Kuwaiti mothers are not among this batch, as they are accepted automatically in each military course without having to wait for a course designed for bedoons.
