KUWAIT: Kuwait University Secretariat General has asked its administration to list 56 non Kuwaiti employees at the university in order to freeze their jobs in the next fiscal year 2016/2017.

This means that the expats on the list will lose their jobs or their contracts will not be renewed and the positions will not be reopened again for expatriates but reserved only for Kuwaiti nationals.

The secretariat said in an official letter that the decision follows from the Civil Service Commission (13/2007), in regards to the Kuwaitization of government jobs, and requirements to reduce non-Kuwaiti staff by 15 percent each year
