No confidence in the Kuwaiti defense minister

10 MPs submitted a request for a vote of no confidence in Defense Minister Sheikh Hamad Jaber Al-Ali Al-Sabah, after being questioned by MP Hamdan Al-Azmi today, Tuesday.
The Speaker of the Kuwaiti National Assembly (parliament), Marzouq Al-Ghanim, said that the vote will take place in the session on Wednesday, January 26, according to the National Assembly’s account on Twitter.
The interrogation revolved around several accusations, the most important of which were the “intrusion” of women into the military, violations in the purchase of Eurofighter planes, failure to cooperate with the regulatory bodies, ignoring the response to parliamentarians’ questions, “neglecting” the state’s lands and other accusations, all of which the minister denies.
Withdrawing confidence from a minister requires that a majority of the members who make up the Council vote against him, except for ministers, where ministers do not participate in the vote of confidence in their colleague, even though they are all considered representatives in Parliament.
The Kuwaiti parliament has more influence than a similar council is allowed in other Gulf Arab states, and this includes the power to pass laws and prevent them from being passed, to question the prime minister and ministers, and to vote no-confidence against senior government officials.
