KUWAIT CITY, April 8: A proposal has been presented to Kuwait Petroleum Corporation (KPC) and its affiliates to implement 100 percent replacement policy, reports Al-Shahed daily quoting reliable oil sources.
The same sources added the proposal includes employing qualified citizens instead of expatriates in line with the amended deadline for applying the Kuwaitization policy from 2030 to 2040.
Meanwhile, KPC and its affiliated companies will terminate the expatriate secretaries and put them under the contractual system, which means they will be working according to the sector’s actual need for their services, says Al-Kuwaitiya daily.
Report added the step is within the framework of rationalizing expenditure, indicating the expatriate secretaries will receive lower salaries after they are put under the contractual system.
Sources noted the sector has since started taking necessary steps to finalize the list of names of affected employees who will be under the contractual system effective July 1, 2016.
Head of parliament’s Education Committee MP Dr Ouda Al-Ruwai’e says the draft law on private education is aimed to set comprehensive regulations for organizing the work of the private schools, controlling the school fees and improving the services provided by the private schools, reports Al-Rai daily. He affirmed that the committee, through this draft law, is seeking to form a clear mechanism for controlling the schools fees and ensuring they are increased gradually and not suddenly. Al-Ruwai’e indicated that the new draft law will also ensure the guardians of the private schools’ students are aware of their rights and that of their children, adding that it will also activate the role of Ministry of Education in monitoring the private schools and dealing with it in case of any violations of the relevant laws.
