Look into alleged expulsion of 450 Kuwaiti students: MP

KUWAIT CITY, Jan 24: MP Khalil Al-Saleh has called on the Ministry of Education and Private Universities Council to look into the alleged expulsion of 450 Kuwaiti students from a private university after the implementation of certain bylaws and regulations without prior notice.

Al-Saleh wants to know why the university decided to implement the bylaws and regulations this time rather than the previous academic year; thereby, jeopardizing the future of the students. He said the lawmakers will closely follow up the issue, particularly the measures that the ministry will take to address the problem.
Meanwhile, MP Saud Al-Hareeji has asked Deputy Premier and Minister of Defense Sheikh Ahmed Al-Khalid to ensure fair treatment of Saudi and other GCC military personnel who should not be forced to retire before they reach 60 – the official retirement age. He recommended automatic renewal of the tenure of these militarymen in recognition of their dedicated service to Kuwait, specifically their readiness to sacrifice their lives to ensure the security and stability of the nation.

Al-Hareeji disclosed he has obtained information from a reliable source on the purported plan of the minister to end the services of GCC military personnel below 50 years old. He warned this step might have a negative impact on the security and stability of Kuwait.

On the other hand, MP Hisham Al-Baghli has threatened to grill Minister of Information and State Minister for Youth and Sports Sheikh Salman Sabah Al-Sabah in case proven that the Information Ministry signed a contract with Al-Yawm TV newscaster, Mohammed Al-Woshaimi, to present a political program even if the channel has been suspended and referred to the Public Prosecution for violating the Publications and Audio-Visual Law.
