July 21, 20160 Comments

National Assembly of Kuwait suggested to study to have three days off on weekend (Thursday, Friday and Saturday) in July and August due to heat. Please note that this is just a suggestion.

MP Ahmad Lari has presented a proposal in which he called for reducing the number of working hours for employees and increasing the weekends from two days to three due to the high temperatures currently prevalent in Kuwait.

In his proposal, Lari explained that the country has been experiencing high temperatures which will continue throughout the months of July and August. In consideration of this, he proposed increasing the official weekends to three days — Thursday through Saturday — for all state institutions and government agencies. Meanwhile, MP Khalil Abdullah has sent parliamentary questions to the Minister of Education and Higher Education Dr Bader Al-Essa concerning the field of scientific research in Kuwait.

Economy experts have said an additional weekend will cost the nation KD 140 million, indicating a day’s income is worth KD 140.5 million according to a report issued by the Central Bank in 2012.
