The parliamentary Legislative and Legal Affairs Committee approved Sunday the proposal to regulate electricity, water and fuel subsidies for government agencies and their employees.

The committee also approved bills on inclusion of the children of Kuwaiti women married to non-Kuwaitis and Bedouns in the national manpower support, addressing problems of Kuwaiti employees laid off from private companies, and establishment of two State universities – one in Mubarak Al-Kabir or Ahmadi and another in Jahra.

Committee Chairman MP Mohammed Al-Dalal disclosed the bill on electricity, water and fuel subsidies require government agencies to fulfill their financial obligations directly from their budgets. He said the committee also approved the proposal to support national employees in the oil sector, while it rejected the recommendation to increase the social allowance for children of Kuwaitis working in the private sector as it contravenes the Constitution.

He added the committee approved the proposals to exempt an only child from mandatory military service; double the year in civil service for those who will render compulsory military service; establish a development center for teachers comprising of representatives from the Ministry of Education and Higher Education, Secretariat General of Awqaf and Teachers Association; amend the Pre-Marriage Medical Examination Law such that men who are planning to get married will participate in a twoweek pre-marriage training course to learn about their rights and obligations if they wish to do so but it is not mandatory; set water and electricity charges; and establish a Kuwaiti shareholding company to supply , install and operate an automated system for reading electricity meters and to allow advance payment of bills. He added the committee decided to submit these proposals to the competent panels so the next meeting will focus on the Anti-Corruption Law, while it postponed taking a decision on the Small Enterprises Bill for further study.
