KUWAIT CITY, Feb 4: Minister of Interior, Sheikh Thamer Al-Ali has stressed on the need to upgrade the level of services provided by all service sectors of the Ministry of Interior at the best possible level, by overcoming all obstacles faced by the visitors so that their transactions can be completed what he called ‘easily and conveniently’.
The Minister was speaking while on an inspection tour of the General Traffic Department and the Residence, Nationality Affairs and Travel Documents departments to supervise the mechanism that have been issued and to ascertain their implementation and to check on the presence of assistant undersecretaries in public reception areas in the morning and to ensure they meet in the public reception area every week between 6 to 9 pm.
The minister began his tour of the General Traffic Department, during which he checked on the mechanism that has been adopted to receive the visitors. During the visit he was accompanied by the Assistant Undersecretary for Traffic and Operations Affairs, Major- General Jamal Al-Sayegh and the senior officials of the General Traffic Department.
During the tour, said the assistant undersecretaries will deal with any problems and the solution of the problems is “part of our policy at the Ministry, and we personally help complete and facilitate the transactions of visitors,” said the minister.
He added, “When I have gained the confidence of the political leadership as a Minister of Interior, it is imperative that I go to work sites and get to know the most important dilemmas facing the administrations and give solutions that keep pace with security perceptions and facilitate the services required for citizens and residents, including working through ‘online’ and updating data to complete transactions without the need to rush to service departments.”
The minister emphasized, saying one of the goals of the ministry is to train and develop securitymen because they are the pillar directly concerned with the improvement and work performance and providing the best services, as well as applying the law without exception to everyone, and this is one of the main goals of the security system that does not accept any kind of ‘tampering’ with the law.
