KUWAIT Kuwait National Assembly Speaker Marzouq Al-Ghanim highlighted the commitment of parliament to cooperation with the executive authority in the face of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
“Now, there are neither two trenches nor two teams; there is only one team, called Kuwait. All Kuwaitis must act as one and be in the same trench in the fight against the Covid-19,” he said in an interview with Kuwait TV channel last night.
He noted that there are daily meetings between MPs and cabinet members “where we convey to the government the pulse of the nation and express our views on how to address the current crisis.” “The battle against COVID-19 is spearheaded by Minister of Health Sheikh Dr. Basel Al-Sabah and all of us back up the government drive,” Al-Ghanim said, adding that he is in contact with His Highness the Prime Minister Sheikh Sabah Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah in this regard.
“Some MPs asked Deputy Prime Minister and Minister Defense of Defense Sheikh Ahmad Mansour Al-Sabah on the likelihood of curfew and he did not rule out this possibility,” Al-Ghanim added.
