The ‘Priorities’ meeting extended for four hours, attended by 20 deputies and four ministers.
On the occasion, Al-Muwaiziri emphasized that ‘our deadline is February 6… It’s time to prioritize the needs of our citizens and the people.’
Fahad added that “critical issues affecting the public cannot be used as bargaining chips.”
The upcoming session on Tuesday appears poised to serve as a significant test of the relationship between the legislative and executive branches. It will gauge the commitment of deputies to the legislative map schedule, especially the laws to improve livelihoods, and the government’s insistence on the priority of its work program first.
As Prime Minister His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Al-Sabah finalizes the government’s work program and prepares for the press meeting, the inaugural session of the Parliamentary Priorities Committee following the new government’s formation faced challenges. Despite the attendance of four ministers and approximately 20 deputies, consensus on the legislation for the February 6 session was not achieved.
