Parliament rejects development plan
Kuwait’s National Assembly has rejected a plan put forward by the Cabinet for development during the 2012/2013 fiscal year.
The development plan which covers development up to 2014 is required by law to be passed each year. This year the plan contained proposals for a new airport terminal, oil refinery and hospitals.
The draft bill included spending of Kuwaiti Dinar 30bn (£67 billion; $108 billion). The parliament accuses the government of failing to make progress on major investments within the plan.
