KUWAIT CITY, April 13: Insurance Regulatory Unit (IRU) Decision No. 24/2023 on increasing the mandatory car insurance fee is illegal, says MP Khalid Al-Anzi. Al-Anzi explained that the decision is a violation of Article Six of Law No. 67/1976 on authorizing the Interior Ministry to specify the regulations and conditions regarding car insurance. Thus, he asked Minister of Interior Sheikh Talal Khalid Al-Ahmad Al- Sabah and Minister of Commerce and Industry Muhammad Al- Eban to shoulder their responsibility and nullify the decision.

He also addressed Minister of Public Works Dr Amani Bugammaz on the miserable condition of roads, stressing such a situation is no longer bearable. He pointed out the Public Works Ministry’s failure to impose penalties on erring contractors and non-referral of these contractors to the Public Prosecution entails that Bugammaz must submit her resignation.

He called on His Highness the Prime Minister Sheikh Ahmad Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al- Sabah to avoid repeating the same errors. He added that respecting the verdicts of the Constitutional Court means HH the Prime Minister should avoid committing mistakes like the errors that led to the issuance of the recent decision of the court. He stressed the need for the premier to attend parliamentary sessions not only to take the constitutional oath, but also to cooperate in ratifying bills on increasing salaries and pension and the establishment of the Higher Commission for Elections.

Meanwhile, 2022 Parliament member Falah Al-Hajri urged Minister of Justice, Endowments and Islamic Affairs Amer Muhammad Ali to correct the errors committed by his predecessor regarding the official working hours of teachers assigned in Quran centers. Earlier, the former minister – Abdulaziz Majed Al-Majed – cancelled the exemption of employees in Quran centers from the official working hours specified by the Civil Service Commission (CSC). When the concerned employees protested, Al-Majed told them that he corresponded with the CSC about the decision. By Saeed Mahmoud Saleh Arab Times Staff
