Driver’s li­censes is­sued elec­tron­i­cally soon

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL - By A Saleh

The next few weeks will see the first step of is­su­ing driver’s li­censes elec­tron­i­cally, which aims at mak­ing a qual­i­ta­tive move in serv­ing ci­ti­zens and ex­pats. There will be 15 self-ser­vice kiosks to is­sue driver’s li­censes, as well as in­tro­duc­ing a new gen­er­a­tion of smart driver’s li­censes ac­cord­ing to in­ter­na­tional stan­dards for ci­ti­zens and up­grad­ing prin­ters that match the lat­est tech­niques in this field.

Act­ing Di­rec­tor of the Public Au­thor­ity for Man­power Ahmad Al-Mousa re­sponded to com­plaints by some users of the elec­tronic sys­tem on the de­lay in trans­ac­tions for their work­ers. “The sys­tem may be slower due to the im­prove­ments that the sys­tem is cur­rently un­der­go­ing,” he said, adding that “this slow­ness will not last long.” Mousa thanked em­ploy­ees at the work de­part­ments for their ef­forts.

The crim­i­nal court ex­on­er­ated man­agers of three com­mer­cial com­pa­nies as well as 22 ci­ti­zens over charges of tak­ing il­le­gal salaries from the Man­power and Gov­ern­ment Re­struc­tur­ing Pro­gram (MGRP) through forgery. The pros­e­cu­tion had ac­cused them of forg­ing of­fi­cial doc­u­ments be­tween July 8, 2007 till Dec 31, 2011. The doc­u­ments are ap­pli­ca­tions to reg­is­ter the sus­pects at the Public In­sti­tu­tion for So­cial Se­cu­rity, and ap­pli­ca­tions to re­ceive so­cial al­lowance pay­ments from MGRP. The pros­e­cu­tion also ac­cused them of tak­ing thou­sands of di­nars in cash by com­mit­ting the ac­tions men­tioned above.
