Kuwait parliament panel approves proposed ‘amendment’ to Nationality Law


The parliamentary Legislative and Legal Affairs Committee on Monday approved the proposed amendment to the Nationality Law in order to grant allowance to children of Kuwaiti women married to non-Kuwaitis and another bill on the development of the civil aviation sector.

On the other hand, the committee rejected the proposal to reduce the life imprisonment period to 25 years.





Ministry of Interior Undersecretary Lieutenant General Mahmoud Al-Dosari explained after the meeting that reducing the life imprisonment period to 25 years will not serve as a deterrent. He asserted the ministry is against any proposal to reduce the imprisonment period as this is considered interference in the affairs of the judicial authority.

Meanwhile, MP Waleed Al-Tabtabaei has forwarded questions to Finance Minister Nayef Al-Hajraf about Kuwait Public Transport Company (KPTC).

On another issue, MP Mohammed Al-Huwailah has submitted questions to State Minister for Housing Affairs and Services Dr Jenan Bushahri on the Ministry of Communications’ delayed implementation of some development projects due to failure to complete tender procedures within the deadline for more than six financial years.
He inquired why the ministry failed to realize objectives set out in the State Development Plan and why it did not use funds allocated for the development projects.Moreover, Al-Huwailah asked Minister of Education and Higher Education Dr Hamid Al-Azmi about the plans of Kuwait University to accommodate the rising number of students.
