KUWAIT CITY, April 13: MP Hamdan Al-Azmi has asked Minister of Finance and Minister of State for Economic and Investment Affairs Abdulwahab Al-Rashid about the names, qualifications and experience of senior officials at Kuwait Credit Bank (KCB); and requested for copies of decisions on the promotion of these officials. Al-Azmi also demanded for a list of workers occupying acting monitoring positions, number of applicants to monitoring vacancies at the bank since 2019 till date, list of applicants who passed the interviews and those who were rejected including reasons for rejection, criteria for selecting successful applicants, if these criteria are in line with the regulations of the Civil Service Commission (CSC), if any of the rejected applicants filed complaints about the results, and the response to such complaints.

MP Badr Nasser Al-Humaidi also forwarded queries to Al-Rashid about the recruitment of an Arab as legal consultant at Kuwait General Administration for Customs (KGAC). He asked if KGAC published an advertisement for this job, prioritizing nationals as per the Constitution. Al-Humaidi asked if others applied for the job. If yes, he requested for report on their experience, qualifications, names and nationalities. He also inquired why the job was not given to a Kuwaiti who holds a masters’s degree in Law and registered in the recruitment platform of the CSC.

MP Farz Al-Daihani asked Minister of Health Dr Khalid Al-Saeed if the new building of Farwaniya Hospital has the infrastructure for the telephone network, if this is included in the contract, if the contractor committed violations, and who shouldered the cost of installing and extending cables and wires for the telephone network. Meanwhile, MP Khalid Al-Otaibi criticized the decision of the health minister specifying nine areas served by Jaber Hospital. He urged the minister to cancel this decision, wondering why the geographical factor was not taken into consideration. He pointed out that areas far from the hospital like Abu Fateera, Funaitees and Abu Al- Hassaniya are served by the hospital; while the nearby areas like Sabah Al- Salem, Adan, Qusour and Mubarak Al- Kabeer are excluded. He stressed the need to consider the distance from the hospital and the number of residents in the areas in taking such a decision.

In addition, MP Humoud Mebrek Al-Azmi urged the health minister to allocate outpatient clinics for citizens in the morning shift; while expatriates should visit these clinics only during the afternoon shift. In another development, National Assembly Speaker Marzouq Al- Ghanim sent cables to express condolences to his Filipino counterparts — Speaker of the House of Representatives Lord Allan Velasco and Senate President Vicente Sotto III over the victims of floods in the eastern and southern coasts of the Philippines.
