4 govt agencies submit amended lists
KUWAIT CITY, Feb 3: Interim Minister of Commerce and Industry and Minister of State for Economic Affairs Faisal Al-Medlej confirmed that the Civil Service Commission (CSC) has conducted a technical study on the mechanism for Kuwaitizing jobs in the government sector, reports Al-Anba daily.
Some of the nationals employed in CSC, who occupy supervisory positions and others, carried out the study that was presented to the commission, which then issued a decision specifying the rules on Kuwaitizing government jobs. Al-Medlej revealed the rules include obliging government agencies to annually reduce the number of non-Kuwaiti employees in the job groups mentioned in the decision.
In a related development, Al- Medlej responded to the question of MP Abdullah Al-Mudhaf about the expatriate advisor at CSC. He affirmed the CSC has no expatriate advisor at the moment. He said four Kuwaiti consultants are currently working with the the CSC whose expertise were sought through their original work in the field of consulting within the jurisdiction of the commission and their original employers approved the request of CSC.
The daily also published the Kuwaitization percentages required in government agencies –100 percent in five specializations, more than 95 percent in five specializations and more than 85 percent in four other specializations according to the published schedule.
Meanwhile, four government agencies recently submitted the amended lists of employees, who will receive the incentive allotted for workers on the frontline of the fight against coronavirus, to the Civil Service Commission (CSC), reports Al-Rai daily quoting reliable sources.
Last week, the CSC asked 46 entities to amend their lists including the four government agencies mentioned above, sources disclosed. Sources said the CSC has started scrutinizing the amended lists as a prelude to submission to the concerned ministerial committee, indicating the other entities are also expected to submit their amended lists soon as they were given only one week to respond to CSC.
In case those in charge of reviewing the amended lists of the four government agencies find irregularities, the issue will be referred to Kuwait Anti-Corruption Authority (Nazaha) which will take the necessary measures to protect public funds and to ensure that the incentive is given only to the rightful beneficiaries.
