National Assembly Speaker Marzouq Ali Al-Ghanim said on Monday that he has been informed by the government that no decisions have been made concerning economic reforms in the country.

In a statement to journalists at the National Assembly, Al-Ghanim said that he had met with His Highness the Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Hamad Al-Sabah, who "affirmed that the government hasn't made any decisions regarding economic conditions in the country." The issue will be discussed during a parliament session so that the whole nation would be privy to all information, Al-Ghanim noted.
"We are currently facing many hurdles but it is something that we are capable of overcoming," the Parliament Speaker said.

"There is a blatant flaw in the country's budget and we cannot allow the country to slip into bankruptcy," Al-Ghanim added. "What we see today is an accumulation of misjudgments spanning a significant amount of time," he said.

Moreover, speaking on the grilling motion against Minister of Health Dr. Ali Al-Obaidi, Al-Ghanim said the interrogation is scheduled for Tuesday, adding that Al-Obaidi reserves the right to request for a delay in proceedings,especially after a new item has been added to the motion against him.

A slew of laws that have not been discussed during the last parliament session will be addressed on Tuesday, Al-Ghanim said. Amongst those laws is a special anti-corruption law issued by the Anti-Corruption Authority.

Al-Ghanim also underscored his Iraqi counterpart Salim Al-Jabouri's visit to the country, saying the visit is part of mutual efforts to enhance Kuwaiti and Iraqi ties.
