School curriculums MP Saleh Ashour urged Minister of Education and Higher Education Dr Bader Al-Essa to teach Shiite ‘Twelver’ principles in schools and asked whether the ministry intends amending or changing the Islamic Education curriculums. Ashour mainly focused on parts of the Islamic Education curriculums that prohibit visiting tombs and graves. “What about visiting the tomb of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH)?” he inquired, calling for having curriculums that call for more tolerance and acceptance of others

Conscription law MP Abdullah Maayouf expressed wishes that the government would pass the bill proposed by the Defense Minister Sheikh Khaled Al-Jarrah Al-Sabah to activate the conscription law within the few coming months. “The law should take effect one year after its publication in the official gazette but since it includes a wider age range starting from 18 years and since preparations for this are not yet ready at camps, the law activation was delayed,” he explained.

Retirement Finance Minister Anas Al-Saleh referred over 100 senior finance ministry officials to retirement for spending 30 years in service. The finance ministry justified the decision by following the cabinet decision made upon request from the Civil Services Commission and said that further decisions would be issued soon promoting some employees to fill in the vacancies.
