Al-Turaiji also pointed figures to some administrative corruption and misconduct among the bourse's employees.
The MP also questioned the Minister over the "weak" performance of the state's Audit Audit Bureau on carrying out its annual plan and over a "controversial" KD 2.2 million campaign to promote local products.
