From 3,000 to 13,000: Civil Service Commission grapples with appointment delays.

KUWAIT CITY, April 18: The Civil Service Commission has witnessed a significant surge in the number of citizens awaiting nomination and appointment, soaring from approximately 3,000 two years ago to over 13,000 presently, according to recent statistics obtained by Al-Rai.

This substantial rise underscores a widening gap compared to previous years, highlighting challenges faced by the Service Commission as it strives to match job seekers with vacancies in ministries and government agencies.

Informed sources within the Service Commission disclosed to Al-Rai that the adoption of citizen employment policies in the past had yielded marked success in reducing registration numbers to around 3,000. However, the current scenario paints a starkly different picture, with registrations skyrocketing to over 13,000.

Among those awaiting employment, the data reveals a diverse pool of candidates. Notably, there are 6,168 individuals holding university degrees, along with 111 with master’s degrees and 3 with doctorates. Additionally, there are 2,389 diploma holders, 863 with secondary certificates, 1,341 with intermediate certificates, and 1,133 with primary school certificates.

The sources emphasized the urgent need to address the underlying factors contributing to this surge in registrations. They underscored the importance of cooperation among relevant authorities to mitigate the issue before it escalates further, particularly given the annual influx of graduates awaiting employment opportunities through the Bureau’s appointment process.
