Inaugurating the third stage of the Electronic declaration for judicial papers

Minister of Justice, Awqaf and Islamic Affairs Dr Fahad Al-Afasi said on Sunday his department has backed national cadres demonstrating this approach by appointing a large number of the citizens in the judicial sector.

Minister Al-Afasi, in a statement to journalists after inaugurating the third stage of the “electronic declaration for judicial papers,” said the ministry is seeking to replace expatriates with nationals, engaging the citizens in training courses so they may perform their duties excellently.

As to the electronic project, he said a counter has been set up at all the courts for the private sector, while awaiting the unregistered companies to be recorded in the digital service.

Meanwhile, local banks are facing difficulties in the implementation of the 60 percent and more replacement policy (Kuwaitization) in higher departments, reports Al-Qabas daily. The Central Bank of Kuwait (CBK) set a deadline for the required adjustment but banks are facing obstacles so they want to request for extension.

Kuwait Banking Association (KBA) intends to address the Central Bank to request for extension. Sources pointed out the Central Bank wants to know details of the obstacles to study them as basis for extending the deadline or not. Sources said the justification provided by some banks are real and the difficulties mentioned are enough to justify the extension request.

Sources explained the number of qualified national banking leaders is limited and they are already working in banks.

Sources added there is stiff competition between banks to attract competent nationals, sometimes pushing up the salary level for these nationals.

Furthermore, the Civil Service Commission (CSC) must appoint those who studied on scholarship the fields of specialization that the labor market needs, reports Al-Rai daily quoting sources. Sources pointed out the job applications in some State institutions and the CSC have been accumulating due to the requirement to identify the actual manpower needs of these institutions.

Sources said the CSC has addressed governmental bodies, according to the scholarship plan, not to nominate certain specializations for scholarship due to lack of opportunities for these specializations in various public institutions.
