Dis­solved par­lia­ment passed high­est rate of laws: Ghanem

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL - By A Saleh

For­mer speaker and the sec­ond elec­toral con­stituency can­di­date Mar­zouq Al-Ghanem said thanks to ac­ti­vat­ing the role played by the Au­dit Bureau through the 2013 par­lia­ment, 52 per­cent of the vi­o­la­tions in var­i­ous min­istries over the past decade have been ad­dressed. Speak­ing to con­stituents in Faiha, Ghanem stressed that the Au­dit Bureau’s re­marks are the real in­di­ca­tors of vi­o­la­tions and cor­rup­tion. He added that the bureau made re­marks to all min­is­ters and gave them a one-month pe­riod to re­spond to those re­marks, which even­tu­ally helped re­duce vi­o­la­tions by 52 per­cent. Ghanem also said the 2013 par­lia­ment passed 114 laws - the high­est rate of leg­is­la­tions by any par­lia­ment. He noted that the par­lia­ment re­solved a great deal of the hous­ing prob­lem by build­ing new cities and dis­tribut­ing 30 per­cent more units than those dis­trib­uted since 1956.

The man­power au­thor­ity in­structed all labor de­part­ments con­cern­ing the pro­ce­dures to be fol­lowed with var­i­ous com­pa­nies ac­cord­ing to spe­cial codes. The au­thor­ity ex­plained that com­pa­nies’ files sus­pended un­der codes 31, 32, 72, 331, 332, 231, 233 and 131 would re­main to­tally sus­pended and they are only al­lowed to can­cel res­i­den­cies pend­ing de­par­ture. The au­thor­ity added that all types of trans­ac­tions would re­main sus­pended for files un­der code 71, while those sus­pended un­der code 73 would not be al­lowed to add new work­ers or re­new work per­mits. “Those sus­pended un­der code 74 can­not add new files, while those un­der codes 333 and 234 are only al­lowed trans­fers or can­cel­la­tions for de­par­ture,” the au­thor­ity ex­plained.

So­cial al­lowance

Sec­re­tary Gen­eral of the Man­power and Gov­ern­ment Re­struc­tur­ing Pro­gram Fauzi AlMa­j­dali said the gov­ern­ment aims to limit and re­duce so­cial al­lowance paid to cit­i­zens in the pub­lic sec­tor. Ma­j­dali ex­plained that the aim was to fight all forms of vi­o­la­tions, forgery and un­law­ful pay­ment through fake re­cruit­ment of cit­i­zens only to get the al­lowance.

GCC Economic De­vel­op­ment au­thor­ity mem­bers, in a meet­ing in Riyadh, set a spe­cial sched­ule to put the GCC uni­fied cus­toms and uni­fied mar­ket de­ci­sions into prac­tice by the end of 2017 in or­der to even­tu­ally achieve com­plete economic unity by 2025.
