Al-Ghanim receives grilling motion against Commerce min.
KUWAIT, March 29 (KUNA) -- National Assembly Speaker Marzouq Al-Ghanim received, on Tuesday, a grilling motion from MPs Ahmad Al-Qodaibi and Mubarak Al-Hurais against Minister of Commerce and Industry Dr. Yousef Al-Ali in his official capacity. The grilling motion will be discussed on the Parliament's next session, on April 12. Earlier today, the two MPs presented their request to challenge the minister's misuse of power, in accordance to laws number 100 and 101 of the constitution. The Minister will be brought for questioning on two issues: gravel plots violations and hindrance of activating a fund to support and develop small and medium-sized enterprises. Law number 100 of the constitution indicates that "Every member of the National Assembly may address to the Prime Minister and to Ministers interpellations with regard to matters falling within their competence." Law number 101, meanwhile, points out that "Every Minister is responsible to the National Assembly for the affairs of his ministry. If the Assembly passes a vote of no-confidence against a Minister, he is considered to have resigned his office as from the date of the vote of no-confidence and shall immediately submit his formal resignation." "The question of confidence in a Minister may not be raised except upon his request or upon a demand signed by ten members, following a debate on an interpellation addressed to him. The Assembly may not make its decision upon such a request before the lapse of seven days from the presentation thereof," it continues. (Pick up pervious) hrz.nfm
