Budget constraints delay Civil Service appointments

The source noted that job candidates must await the approval of the draft general budget for 2024-2025, emphasizing that the draft budget is awaiting approval after the elections.

An informed source has disclosed that a significant number of individuals recently nominated to work with government agencies through the Civil Service Commission have yet to be appointed. This delay is attributed to the absence of financial allocations within the budgets of the respective agencies designated to employ them.

The source mentioned that job candidates must await the approval of the draft general budget for 2024-2025. They emphasized that the draft budget is pending approval after the elections, indicating that appointments will not occur beforehand in entities that have utilized their financial allocations for appointments within the previous budget draft.

The sources indicated that the Ministry of Finance had canceled the supplementary accreditation for job grades in government agencies since the draft budget for 2022-2023.

They noted that this action obligated the agencies to accept and adhere to the number of new job grades included in their draft budgets without any increments.

They further pointed out that continuing with this policy would result in an overcrowding of Kuwaitis awaiting jobs in the government sector.
