KUWAIT CITY: A meeting today between the Civil Service Commission (CSC) and representatives of government and educational institutions focused on suitable work and school hours to avoid traffic congestions.
Chairman of the commission Abdulaziz Al-Zabin said in a press release that it was imperative to coordinate efforts amongst government institutions and educational facilities to avoid the traffic’s daily grind. During the meeting, the commission asked for the other participants to provide solid statistics and numbers to reach a solution for the traffic problems caused by the conflicting working and school hours, said Al-Zabin. Meanwhile, Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs has reportedly refused to hire a Kuwaiti woman who was recruited by the Civil Service Commission (CSC), because she did not wear an ‘Abaya’ during her interview, reports Al-Jaridah daily.
The candidate said she was shocked to receive the news particularly since she had passed the written test, adding she refused to see the officials of the ministry to complain about the problem. She explained that the ministry employee who was conducting the interview insisted that she must wear an Abaya, as it is compulsory to do so in the ministry. In response, she said an individual’s dress sense is a personal matter. After the interview, she was told that she had failed the test and would have to wait for another interview. She revealed that she did not get a call from the ministry for the interview even after one month.
