KUWAIT CITY, Aug 6: In the context of limiting political interference in the educational process and the use of “wasta” to support the programs of former MPs and electoral candidates to collect votes in exchange for executing the transactions of citizens in the same constituency, educational sources revealed that verbal instructions were issued to the leaders of the Ministry of Education to prevent receiving former MPs and their secretaries or election candidates and avoid receiving any transactions that are not their own under any pretext.
They explained that the instructions stressed the need to receive transactions only through the citizen service department, which sorts them according to the concerned sector, decides on them, and then returns them to the same receiving department in order to communicate directly with the owner of the transaction without the mediation of an MP or his secretariat.
The sources expressed their satisfaction with this step, which would relieve pressure on the ministry’s leaders and prevent any electoral exploits. They explained that preventing parliamentary interference will contribute to improving the work environment, which has become repulsive and frustrating for many workers in this ministry, as it has for years allowed political interference and pressure that spoiled education and interfered in the entire educational process.
Appointments to leadership positions were previously subject to some parliamentary pressure, but in recent years, even supervisory positions have become subject to political pressure in naming them due to the ministry’s procrastination in filling them with eligible people, who are many. These positions are subject to conditions of the ministry and the applicable rules and regulations in the Civil Service Commission, and hence must not be subject to whims, moods, and political interference By Abdul Rahman Al-Shammari Al-Seyassah Staff
