KUWAIT - Nov.5 - Information Minister Quits.
The government accepts the resignation of Information Minister Saad
Bin Teflah Al Ajmi, a liberal who has been the target of criticism by
some MPs for his media policy. The reason for his resignation is not
disclosed (but is believed to have resulted from internal disputes
within the cabinet as well as criticism from parliament). The cabinet at
the same time vows to throw its weight behind Housing Minister Adel Al
Sebeih who is facing a grilling in parliament over a range of decisions
to cut housing welfare. The cross-examination is listed on the
parliament's agenda for Nov.6.
