In parallel to the popular campaign, which was launched against the government’s decision not to renew work permits for people aged 60 and over, MPs Adnan Abdel Samad and Dr. Hamad Al-Matar expressed their rejection of this decision, they described the decision as random and ill-considered, calling on the government to reconsider the disabling fees it imposed on those affected by this decision, which amounts to KD 2000, Al Jarida reported.Join our telegram group to know the latest news in Kuwait https://t.me/kuwaitoffering
In a statement, Abdul Samad called on the cabinet to reconsider the decision, because it is random and never contributes to reforming the demographic structure. Rather, the market loses the professional expertise that Kuwait needs.
For his part, Deputy Dr. Hamad Al-Matar asserted that the decision was immature, unconsidered, and unacceptable. If government institutions have the right not to appoint expatriates who have reached 60 years of age or to impose a large sum on them, they do not have the right to interfere in the private sector and prevent it from doing so.
Al-Matar told the daily that if the goal is the subject of treatment, it is better to impose backup health insurance on them, which will cost them about KD 250, but for the government to say I have no objection to renewing their contracts on the condition that they pay KD 2,000, this is strange and unacceptable.
