National Assembly Speaker Marzouq Al-Ghanim on Tuesday opened the parliament's regular session which will include several interpellations of state ministers.

Two grillings each have targeted His Highness the Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Hamad Al-Sabah, State Minister for National Assembly Affairs and State Minister for Planning and Development Rold Dashti and State Minister for Housing and State Minister for Municipality Affairs Salem Al-Othaina.
Also, a vote of confidence presented by 10 lawmakers has been taken out against State Minister for Cabinet Affairs and Health Minister Sheikh Mohammad Abdallah Al-Mubarak Al-Sabah.

As for His Highness the Prime Minister, a grilling by MP Riyadh Al-Adsani is aimed at the alleged vagueness surrounding government public policies, the alleged slump in performance across public services and state bodies, not utilising public funds appropriately and not being serious in the construction of the country.

The other grilling by MP Safaa Al-Hashim will similarly focus on the government's 'working plan' on development.

On the State Minister for National Assembly Affairs and State Minister for Planning and Development Rold Dashti, a grilling from MP Khalil Abdullah focuses on her ministry's assumed failure to carry out responsibilities on the state 'working plan' in an institutionalized and professional manner, which deem it accountable and up for question.

Abdullah's grilling also focuses on adverse effects to the national economy and threats on the present and future of the country as a result of the development matter being badly managed.
MP Safaa Al-Hashim will also grill Dashti on the minister's decision to hire an Iraqi national as a close aide at the Ministry of Planning and Development.

Two grillings of the State Minister for Housing and State Minister for Municipality Affairs Salem Al-Othaina will focus on firstly the housing crisis, the dramatic rise of land prices and stalled state housing projects, and secondly destabilizing national unity, the abuse of power, breaking the law and breaching the constitution.

These grillings will be carried out by MP Riyadh Al-Adsani and jointly MPs Abdullah Al-Tamimi and Faisal Al-Duwaisan respectively.
