MP Saleh Ashour on Thursday presented a motion to grill Minister of Education and Minister of Higher Education Dr. Nayef Al-Hajraf on corruption charges.

The four-axes motion, delivered to Acting National Assembly Speaker Saud Al-Hreiji, charged the minister with administrative corruption and irregular activities at Kuwait University, nepotism involving appointment of inexperienced citizens at senior posts and illegally ending personnel service.

He is also accused of "exposing students and workers to dangers, squandering public funds, by means of camouflaging hazardous breaches of construction and safety specifications of buildings of the Public Authority for Applied Education and Training (PAAET) in Shuwaikh." MP Ashour also claimed that the minister did not take legal measures regarding some unethical actions, conducts and grave breaches.

The National Assembly member is to interpellate the minister according to Provision 100 of the Constitution, whereby any Parliament member is entitled to question the premier or the ministers on matters within their jurisdictions.
