KUWAIT CITY, July 18: Non- Kuwaiti government employees included in the replacement list can not work in the government sector again, reports Al-Qabas quoting a reliable source. The source informed the daily that some government agencies completed their replacement lists at the end of March, that is, by the end of the 2020/2021 fiscal year; but they later asked the Civil Service Commission (CSC) to use the services of some employees included in the replacement lists by changing their contracts.
