Files prepped on acting ministers
Conditions set for restoration of revoked citizenship
KUWAIT CITY, Nov 14: In a step to assess the performance of ministers in the resigned government and before the announcement of the new government formation, the Secretariat General of Planning has prepared file of each minister at the request of the Council of Ministers, reports Annahar daily.
Each file shall contain the performance level, development plan follow up, huge projects, observations on work of the leaders of each minister, delays in the implementation of projects and the most important achievements.. All files will be submitted to the Council of Ministers once completed.
The revoked citizenships will be reinstated under two conditions, reports Al-Anba daily quoting senior ministry sources.
The first condition is that those whose citizenship is reinstated will be considered as ‘new naturalization’ for persons who were originally granted the citizenship based on the 1965 census and the committee formed to review the issue of revoked citizenships had submitted a recommendation to the Cabinet to reinstate the citizenships before last Ramadan.
However, the sources explained citizenships will be reinstated for those who meet this condition in accordance with the draft law for naturalization that no more than 2,000 people in 2017 will be granted the citizenship when the law is approved by the National Assembly and submitted to the government.
The sources added the second condition is that citizenships will be reinstated for those who satisfy Article (1), such as the case of the former MP Abdullah Al-Barghash, and those who had acquired it after rendering great services to the country. However, everything will become clear after the formation of the new government.
As for the date of reinstating the citizenships of those who were registered in the 1965 census, the sources said 2017 is nearing the end and thus it is unlikely to naturalize 2,000 this year but surely next year ‘if’ the law is passed.
