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.
