KUWAIT CITY, June 16: Minister of Social Affairs and Community Developmen­t, and Minister of Electricit­y, Water and Renewable Energy, Dr. Misha’an Al-Otaibi, said 15 consultant­s are working in the office of the Minister of Social Affairs and Community Developmen­t since 2017, whose salary ranged between 1,000 and 2,000 dinars. All of them have been terminated except for one.

In response to a parliament­ary question submitted by MP Ahmad Al-Azmi, Al-Otaibi said the employment of these consultant­s did not benefit the social affairs or community developmen­t other than the monthly stipend paid to them by the Civil Service Council (CSC).

With regard to the Public Authority for Manpower, 6 consultant­s were hired in 2017 whose salaries ranged between 500 and 1,500 dinars. The services of all of them have been terminated except for one consultant.
