For­mer MP pre­dicts par­lia­ment to in­clude at least 10 op­po­si­tion MPs

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL - By A Saleh

For­mer MP Riyadh AlAd­sani stressed that if he makes it to the com­ing par­lia­ment, he will not re­sign as he pre­vi­ously did. “In the pre­vi­ous par­lia­ment, we could not pro­pose a no-con­fi­dence mo­tion against a grilled min­is­ter and did not have a ma­jor­ity,” he said, pre­dict­ing that the com­ing par­lia­ment will at least in­clude 10 op­po­si­tion mem­bers and that he will work with them.

Schools pre­pared

Mean­while, the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion has started pre­par­ing 100 schools in var­i­ous ar­eas around Kuwait to host par­lia­men­tary elec­tions due on Nov 26, said in­formed sources, not­ing that the schools would be handed over to the Min­istry of In­te­rior on Thurs­day, Nov 24. The sources also noted that Sun­day, Nov 27, the day fol­low­ing the elec­tions, would be a day off only for stu­dents at those schools, while ad­min­is­tra­tive and teach­ing staff will have to re­port to work.

Mu­nic­i­pal Coun­cil

In the mean­time, well-in­formed sources pre­dicted that Mu­nic­i­pal Coun­cil Chair­man Muhal­hel AlKhaled will not de­clare the seats of the five coun­cil mem­bers - Ab­dul­lah Al-Kan­dari, Ahmed Al-Bughaili, Nayef Al-Sour, Me­shari Al-Mutoutah and Mane’ Al-Ajmi - run­ning for par­lia­men­tary elec­tions as va­cant un­til a meet­ing on Nov 21, when the Min­istry of In­te­rior will an­nounce the fi­nal lists of can­di­dates.

Spe­cial schools

Deputy di­rec­tor of the ed­u­ca­tional and re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion ser­vices sec­tor at the pub­lic au­thor­ity for the dis­abled Ma­jed Al-Saleh said the au­thor­ity has formed a team to as­sess fees col­lected by pri­vate spe­cial schools. Saleh added that fees would be set ac­cord­ing to the schools’ and nurs­eries’ as­sess­ment and those with low as­sess­ment grades would have their fees fixed, while those as­sessed highly would be al­lowed to in­crease their fees by 9-15 per­cent.

Teach­ers ex­cluded

The Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion’s Un­der­sec­re­tary Dr Haitham Al-Athari ex­cluded teach­ers from the Civil Ser­vice Com­mis­sion’s de­ci­sion on halt­ing all trans­fers and dep­u­tiz­ing de­ci­sions for min­istry em­ploy­ees from Nov 1 un­til a new Cab­i­net is in of­fice. In other news, the deputy di­rec­tor for cus­toms af­fairs Suleiman Ab­dul Aziz Al-Fahd said new jobs ap­pear not to be el­i­gi­ble for al­lowances on in­putting the data in the sys­tem. Fahd added that a new com­mit­tee is be­ing formed jointly be­tween the cus­toms and Civil Ser­vice Com­mis­sion to re­view those de­serv­ing in­fec­tion and haz­ard al­lowances and in­clude them in the sys­tem.
