They said the law, if approved, will contribute in increasing the efficiency of the healthcare sector in Kuwait, adding that the law has gained the support and appreciation of the Ministers Council, as the latter is concerned about supporting Ministry of Health in improving the health services and increasing the efficiency of the healthcare sector.

The center explained that the Amir used 24 words to describe irresponsible freedom leading to major negative consequences in his opinion, while he used 18 words to describe the bad method by which the media and social networking websites handle issues. The center stressed that the speech also dealt with other major aspects besides freedom and media, indicating that HH the Amir used straight forward words to discuss those aspects, which reflected his concern for the public.

In another development, Head of Parliament’s Youth and Sports Committee MP Dr Abdullah Al-Turaiji affirmed the existence of a preplanned agenda of some local sports associations to create problems and suspend Kuwaiti sports, demanding the government to shoulder the responsibility and take decisive action against them as well as international sports associations that refuse the modifications made to Decree 26/2012, reports Al-Rai daily. He said, “International sports organizations other than the local Olympic Committee do not have the right to interfere in the local legislations of any country”, explaining that some associations and organizations have rejected modifying the membership period of clubs’ administrations to two terms. He added that the Olympic Committee opposed the modifications even though they do not oppose any international sports pacts.
