Domestic help company operates in September
Chairman of Ishbelia Cooperative Society Bussam Al-Mutairi said the Al-Durra Domestic Help Company will start work in September, adding that the society will provide all possible facilities to organize the process of bringing in workers. Mutairi said he held a technical meeting with the company’s operations director Ahmad Al-Fares in the presence of co-op secretary Saad Al-Rasheedi. Some Asian countries were approved for bringing in domestic help, including Philippines, India, Madagascar, Nepal and Sri Lanka. He said it was also agreed to apply to hire helpers electronically to help the elderly and those with special needs. He said the period for a helper to arrive will be a minimum of two months from the date of the application, adding that the guarantee will be for six or three months as agreed. As for returned workers, the company will take them back without a fee and possibility of a refund, provided that a six-month period has not elapsed.
A report on the resignation of former chairwoman of Kuwait Airways Rasha Al-Roumi will be ready by the start of the next term of the National Assembly, the parliamentary investigation committee said in a statement. The committee will hold a meeting today with Interior Minister Sheikh Khalid Al-Jarrah to ask him where the Civil Aviation Department belongs - to the interior ministry or the state ministry for economic affairs.
MP Nayef Al-Merdas said the government is using a defensive plan against proposed laws. He said although it should take the initiative and have discussions with the executive authority, it is always confronting laws tabled by MPs, the latest of which is the salaries and military allowances law that it returned it to the Assembly on the last working day before Eid. He said the fatwa and legislation department, social security, the finance committee and concerned ministers did not oppose it.
Minister of Social Affairs and Labor and State Minister for Economic Affairs Hind AlSabeeh said the government fully cooperates with the committee studying aspects of the prime minister’s grilling, and it is ready to present all necessary information. She said she attended the committee’s meeting and presented everything related to the issues brought up in the grilling. The committee held a meeting to discuss the grilling of the prime minister in the presence of Sabeeh to discuss the demographic structure and the high unemployment rate, but a lack of quorum prevented the meeting.
