For his part, the resigning Defense Minister Hamad Jaber al-Ali expressed “deep regret for the misuse of constitutional tools in the country, which prompted us to take this step by submitting our resignations to the President”. He added: “We have pledged to protect public money and take legal reforms and measures, but not for success. We cannot succeed in this situation which reflects the desire for failure.” He further added that “investigations are a constitutional right, but he and other ministers have failed to realize the aspirations of the Kuwaiti people who expect a lot from them.”
