October 30, 2014, 8:43 am

A specialized committee at the Municipality Council agreed to a proposal to tear down Dasman Palace and have it rebuilt as a presentable headquarters for the nation's ruler, the committee chairman told reporters on Wednesday.

Dasman Palace is a historic building of great emotional content to many Kuwaitis, having survived decades of events experienced by generations of Kuwaitis, said the chairman Manea Al-Ajmi.

He stressed that the palace has been a landmark location in the heart of Kuwait city and should be preserved in that location for its historic significance, provided it is updated and put to practical use.

Once completed, the palace could be under the supervision of the Cabinet or the Kuwait Municipality, he pointed out.
