Another Kuwaiti Standoff

I missed the start of this fracas, but Kuwait's Parliament is already going after a member of the new government:
"The new lineup has come under pressure from parliament just three months after the last government resigned to avert a no-confidence vote against the then-health minister.

"Deputies are now criticising Oil Minister Shaikh Ali Al Jarrah Al Sabah, some calling for him to be questioned or even to resign for seeking advice from a predecessor who had been investigated for alleged embezzlement."

I'm all for elected legislatures flexing their muscle, but seriously, is this the best they can do? Attacking a guy for seeking advice from the guy before him?
