KUWAIT, Dec 3 (KUNA) -- Yaqoub Al-Humaidhi, a former MP and one of five persons who wrote the constitution of Kuwait, passed away on Sunday. He was 86.
Born in 1931, Al-Humaidhi started his education in Syria and then joined the Ibrahimi high school in Cairo, and continued his university studies in Britain.
The deceased was secretary general of the Constitution Committee in the Constituent Council, occupying a leading position despite his young age.
Al-Humaidhi contributed with committee members - Abdullatif Al-Ghanim, Humoud Al-Khaled, Saud Al-Abdulrazzaq and Sheikh Saad Al-Abdullah Al-Salem Al-Sabah - in completing the constitution which was approved by the Constituent Council in November 9, 1962.
During the wording of the constitution, Al-Humaidhi asked education be compulsory until high school and said the parliamentary system was more suitable for the Kuwaiti society than the presidential system.
Al-Humaidhi run for the 1962 parliamentary elections representing the Fifth Constituency and came third. He joined seven MPs in resigning from the National Assembly in December 1965 after the government tabled laws the resigness said restricting freedoms.
The deceased began his career with his father's business, before establishing the first poultry company in Kuwait.
He established Kuwait dairy company and was the first person to import sheep from Australia.
He was named member of the constitution amendment committee, and member of boards in Kuwait Invesment Authority, Kuwait Dairy company, The public authority for agriculture and fish affairs, and Kuwait Foundation for Advancement of Sciences. (end) mad.bs
