Article Seven of the Constitution stipulates that justice, freedom and equality are the pillars of society; hence, the need to amend the executive regulations of the law on housing care for women in order to grant KD 70,000 housing loan to Kuwaiti women married to non-Kuwaitis, says MP Mansour Al-Zufairi. In a press statement, Al-Zufairi pointed out Article 29 of the Constitution states that all people are equal in human dignity, public rights and duties without discrimination based on gender, ethnic origin or religion.
He said every Kuwaiti woman married to a non- Kuwaiti has the right to get housing loan like other categories. He added Article Eight of the Constitution stipulates that the State shall safeguard the pillars of society and ensure security, peace and equal opportunities and rights, including housing care, for all citizens – both men and women. He also stressed the need for approval of the proposed rent, social and children allowances for Kuwaiti women married to non-Kuwaitis, as well as equal rights between men and women in terms of passing on their citizenship to their children.
