Meanwhile, MP Khalil Al- Saleh pointed out the decision of a local bank to terminate the contracts of several Kuwaiti employees is totally unacceptable.

He called on the relevant authorities to interfere in order to rectify this mistake.
In another development, MPs Muhammad Al-Hadiya and Shuaib Al-Muwaizri joined their colleagues in voicing objection to the spread of immoral activities, especially in beach resorts and islands. Al-Hadiya stressed the importance of taking tough action against those who tarnish the conservative nature of the Kuwaiti society and disturb families by engaging in immoral activities. He urged the Ministry of Interior to intensify security campaigns and procedures in order to put an end to such activities and establish more police stations in areas where the number of citizens’ complaints about immorality continues to increase.
