The Legislative Committee of the National Assembly has given the nod for the revision every three years the salaries of contract workers in the government sector based on the cost of living. The issue has now been referred to the Human Resources Development Committee, reports Al-Anba daily.

Chairman of the committee Mubarak Al-Harees said the committee has approved the amendment of the law of the Kuwait Investment Authority, especially the issue related to the tenure of the board of directors to be 3 years instead of 4 year and one-time only. He said the committee also agreed on a draft law on the establishment of a health fund for athletes and that the issue has been referred to the Committee on Youth and Sports.

The draft law is related to the compensations that will be given to players in case of any injury and the manner of treatment. He said the committee approved the draft law on the reorganization of the Kuwaiti Fund for Arab Economic Development. He pointed out the amendment is aimed at transforming the operations of the Kuwait Fund to Islamic Sharia, and the appointment of a Sharia Supervisory Board to check on the legality of the members of the Fund.

Moreover, he said, the tenure of the Director-General and Board of Directors will be three years. He said the committee also agreed on a draft law on the amendment of some articles of Law No. 23 of 1968 related to the Police Force system.
