Ahmad Al Manfouhi, the Deputy Director General for Structural Planning at Kuwait Municipality, and leader in-charge for evicting bachelors from family residential areas.

This decision was taken during a meeting with officials of Public Authority of Civil Information (PACI), represented by Deputy Director General for Civil Information Registration, Ali Hammoud al-Gharba and Director of Statistics Department, Mohammad Al-Omar.

All necessary measures have been undertaken to suspend issuance of Civil IDs to bachelors living in private residential areas, based on the Cabinet decision issued in this regard. He further emphasized that his team is keen about co-ordinating with the concerned authorities for dealing with this issue and will take all necessary procedures in line with the law.

Meanwhile, Ali Al-Gharba also emphasized the importance of applying the Cabinetís decision of banning bachelors from residing in private residential areas.

Further, Mohammed Al Omar said that the team has been given six months to erase the phenomenon of bachelors residing in private residential areas, due to which, increased co-operation among all concerned authorities is required to ease all obstacles that the team will face.
