‘Nationality only for those who deserve’ ‘Widows, divorcees on list’

KUWAIT CITY, July 21: Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Sheikh Muhammad Al-Khaled Al-Sabah is working hard to issue citizenship to the children of naturalized Kuwaitis - especially the children of military personnel, in honor of their selfless services to maintain security and stability in the country, reports Al-Rai daily. The daily quoting sources indicated that Sheikh Al-Khaled is looking into 91 files of the children of naturalized citizens, whom according to the sources, would be naturalized before the upcoming Eid. 
Sources added the minister has also given directives to the Central System for Remedying the Status of Illegal Residents (CSRSIR) to complete the files of widows and divorcees who deserve citizenship so as to complete the process soon. Sheikh Al-Khaled praised the efforts rendered by CSRSIR to ensure the citizenship goes to only those who deserve it. Meanwhile, the sources said the concern authorities are currently looking into several citizenship files, which could lead to withdrawal of the citizenship from some individuals.

KUWAIT CITY: Director General of Public Institute for Social Security (PIFSS) Hamad Al-Humaidhi on Sunday regretted the Institute’s labor union’s refusal of an initiative to suspend strike and return to the negotiations’ table. Al-Humaidhi, in a press release, said the initiative included the government’s commitment to review salaries of the Institute’s employees in a “fair” manner within the ‘strategic alternative’ system; due to be proposed in the last quarter of the current year.
Despite positivity shown by PIFSS’s management, yet the union “unjustifiably” chose to carry on with the strike, thus closing the door for negotiation and crippling work at the Institute, he pointed out. “This calls for legal procedures to take its course,” he noted. The strike has been in effect since June 8. Earlier this month, Finance Minister Anas Al-Saleh hoped the Labor Union would cancel their strike, saying dialogue was the best mean to achieve mutual interest.
