The daily quoting a reliable source said the Ministry of Education joined several other ministries in applying the replacement policy that led to the termination of services of 1,507 expatriates in the first year, which represents 54 percent of the total 2,799 expatriates in the sector, followed by Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs that terminated 436 expatriates on July 1,2018 representing 16 percent of its expatriate workforce.
