‘In­te­rior to carry out ex­ten­sive reshuf­fle, trans­fer in few wks’

Arab Times - - LOCAL -

KUWAIT CITY, April 16: In­di­ca­tions are rife that the Min­istry of In­te­rior will carry out an ex­ten­sive reshuf­fling and trans­fer within the next few weeks, which will cover all sec­tors. The de­ci­sion af­fects as­sis­tant un­der­sec­re­taries, di­rec­tors gen­eral and their deputies, re­ports Al-Qabas daily.

A knowl­edge­able source was quoted as say­ing the Deputy Prime Min­is­ter and Min­is­ter of In­te­rior Sheikh Khalid AlJar­rah has de­cided to for­ward the names of five ma­jor gen­er­als to the Coun­cil of Min­is­ters for ap­proval as as­sis­tant un­der­sec­re­tary nom­i­nees in the new struc­ture.

He said the min­istry will ex­pand the cur­rent struc­ture by cre­at­ing new sec­tors and gen­eral depart­ments for more as­sis­tant un­der­sec­re­taries. The idea will con­trib­ute to erad­i­cate sit­u­a­tion whereby se­nior of­fi­cers are left with­out ma­jor ap­point­ments.

He ex­plained that the min­is­ter will con­sider per­for­mance level of the of­fi­cers through the an­nual re­ports from var­i­ous sec­tors and ad­min­is­tra­tions. He reaf­firmed that many of the of­fi­cers have ac­com­plished sig­nif­i­cant achieve­ments in their var­i­ous sec­tors, while many oth­ers do not de­serve to be re­tained in their cur­rent po­si­tions.

He stressed that the is­sue of pro­mo­tion is of essence, cit­ing that pro­mo­tion from the rank of colonel to bri­gadier has been sus­pended for over four years, and the sit­u­a­tion could be­come se­ri­ous cri­sis in fu­ture — es­pe­cially af­ter 304 of­fi­cers have been pro­moted to colonels

and thereby in­creas­ing their num­ber to 900.

He hinted that no less than 150 colonels have been pen­ciled down for pro­mo­tion as brigadiers, es­pe­cially as many of them are serv­ing as di­rec­tors with ex­cel­lent per­for­mance re­ports.
