Bill Proposed to mandate Kuwaitis-first for public jobs

A bill on amending the Civil Service Law has been presented by MP Abdul Kareem Al Kandari, which aims to ensure that expats are appointed to public sector jobs only if there are no qualified Kuwaitis for these positions.

The bill seeks revision of Paragraph Three of Article 15 of the law, to read as follows:
"Non-Kuwaitis should be appointed to public sector jobs only if there are no Kuwaitis qualified to do these jobs. Their employment contracts should not exceed five years, while renewal or extension of their contracts is not allowed in any way".

According to Al-Kandari, the proposal aims to provide public sector jobs to nationals and regulate the appointment of non-Kuwaitis in the sector.
