Kuwait: Government Boycotts Assembly Saying it was Prevented from Giving Views on Bills

Kuwait Times, 11 January 2023: Kuwait’s National Assembly has been adjourned until 24 January 2023 after the government boycotted the 11 January 2023 session, saying it was not allowed to give its opinion on bills that have financial costs.

The boycott comes a day after ministers walked out of the Assembly chamber after calling on the Assembly to send several draft laws with substantial financial costs back to parliamentary committees so they can provide their constitutional and financial opinions.

This request was rejected by the Assembly, prompting the walkout. At least one minister must be present for Assembly sessions to be convened.
