Parliament chief condemns 'insult' to judiciary, specific communities
May 1, 2014, 9:24 am

The parliament will not accept any insults to the judiciary or to any community in the country according to "political agendas," speaker Marzouq Al-Ghanim said on Wednesday.

The National Assembly chief regarded the judiciary as "the cornerstone between the three branches (of state governance)," in remarks to reporters following a parliamentary session.

Kuwaiti lawmakers ended the first deliberation of the environment bill, which Al-Ghanim described as "important", with a close to unanimous vote.

Others discussed include the expatriate residency, the Capital Markets Authority and the transport authority bills.

On the transport authority bill, the senior lawmaker applauded the efforts of MP Adel Al-Kharafi, head of the parliament's public utilities committee, and the Minister of Public Works and Minister of Electricity and Water Abdulaziz Al-Ibrahim on a recommendation for a precise date in completing the matter.

The parliament will meet with government representatives to discuss the matter further on Sunday in preparation for the bill's final adoption at the upcoming parliamentary session.
