KUWAIT CITY, Sept 10: MPs Ahmad Lari and Hani Shams have submitted a proposal to establish service centers along the roads leading to Abdally, Salmi, and Nuwaiseeb borders. This proposal is aimed at providing various services for departing and arriving passengers like shopping malls, restaurants, coffee shops, fuel stations, free commercial zones, garages, cooperative societies, and central markets. They suggested granting licenses for some of these activities to citizens with small and medium enterprises (SMEs).

In another development, Shams called on Minister of Education and Higher Education Ali Al-Manee to stop the public and private schools from banning the registration of Bedoun students under the pretext of expired security certificates. He stressed that education is an absolute right of everyone and it should not be hindered for any reason. He pointed out that developing education is the core of societal advancement. He urged Al-Manee and the senior officials at the Ministry of Education to address this issue in line with the vision of the parliamentary Bedoun Affairs Committee.

MPs Muhammad Al-Mahan, Mubarak Al-Tasha, Fahd bin Jame’e, Hamad Al-Obaid, and Muhammad Hayef submitted a bill on establishing a center for the treatment and rehabilitation of people with intellectual disabilities, cognitive impairment, and autism within one year of ratifying the bill.

The bill mandates the Kuwait Municipality to allocate land for the center in coordination with the concerned institutions, such as the Ministry of Health and Public Authority for Disabled Affairs (PADA). It states that the budget for the establishment of the center should be handed over to the Ministry of Health. According to the bill, the center’s tasks include diagnosis and classification of cases, and reviewing the file of every patient to follow up on their case in cooperation with their families.

It stipulates that the Ministry of Health will provide the necessary equipment and technology, while the health minister will issue the executive regulations within three months of ratifying the bill. Meanwhile, National Assembly Speaker Ahmed Al- Saadoun had a meeting with Kuwaiti Ambassador to Jordan Hamad Rashed Al-Merri. Al-Saadoun also met with the Ambassador of Cyprus to Kuwait Michael Mavros. They talked about issues concerning Kuwait and Cyprus. In addition, Al-Saadoun visited MP Abdulkareem Al-Kandari at Sabah Al-Ahmed Cardiac Center where the latter is undergoing treatment.

Moreover, MP Muhammad Hayef asked Minister of Electricity, Water and Renewable Energy Jaseem Al-Ostad to suspend the disconnection of water and electricity in the houses of citizens who have yet to pay their bills. He explained to Al-Ostad that this period of the year is exceptional, because of the extra expenses of families returning from summer vacation and the opening of schools. He affirmed that Al-Ostad issued a decision to suspend power and water disconnection and allow the citizens to settle their bills on installment basis.
