Kuwait Airways and Jazeera Airways planes are parked on the tarmac at Kuwait International Airport
KUWAIT: Kuwait’s low-cost carrier Jazeera Airways has begun the bidding process for acquiring a 35 percent stake in loss-making state carrier Kuwait Airways, it said yesterday.
Jazeera has submitted a letter of intent to buy the stake, it said in a statement, adding this was expected to be the first privatization by the government that exceeds the $3 billion mark. It didn’t specify if this amount reflected the valuation of the 35 percent stake or the entire company.
The carrier’s chairman Marwan Boodai said Jazeera aims to make Kuwait Airways “a leading airline that meets the ambitions of the Kuwaitis and travelers across the world”. The carrier’s chairman Marwan Boodai noted that the request of acquisition came in line with the country’s policy seeking to encourage the private sector to contribute to promoting the national economy.
Boodai added Jazeera is a joint-stock company and publicly listed at the Kuwait Stock Exchange. Kuwait Airways is one of the Middle East’s oldest airlines but has struggled in the face of competition from younger Gulf carriers such as Qatar Airways and Dubai’s Emirates. Boodai told Reuters in October that it was preparing to make a bid for a 35 percent stake – the maximum allowed by a private investor under Kuwait’s privatization law. Logistics firm Agility has also been linked with bidding for the stake. — Agencies

Officials from the Interior and awqaf ministers are seen during a joint meeting
KUWAIT: Interior Ministry Undersecretary Lieutenant General Suleiman Al-Fahd said the Awqaf Ministry plays a vital role in instilling the values and principles of national unity through guidance in mosques.
A statement by the security information department said Fahd held a joint coordination meeting with the Awqaf ministry’s undersecretary in the presence of assistant undersecretaries of both ministries in order to discuss security measures for places of worship and highlight civic values in the society.
Fahd said the meeting comes on the heels of security developments and heinous criminal acts against some worship places in Saudi Arabia. He said religion should not be used as a cover and an illegal approach to commit crimes in this holy period of the year. He said all security facilities are at the service of the awqaf ministry to provide a secure atmosphere and deal decisively with all those who compromise the security of places of worship or do not respect the sacredness of the holy month.

KUWAIT: Oil Minister Ali Al-Omair yesterday categorically denied press reports that his proposed appointments in the oil sector are for political reasons aimed at controlling the vital sector. Omair also denied a report in Al-Rai newspaper which alleged that Omair was behind the appointment of two relatives as employees in the oil sector, saying the two are not related to him. The paper claimed in its edition yesterday that the two are members of the Omair family and related to the minister. The minister insisted that he has proposed to appoint 23, and not 43 as claimed, executives in oil companies out of 61, which also refutes that the aim is to wrest control of the vital sector.
Omair however did not say when he will announce the new appointments, which have triggered a controversy. The minister said that the officials he proposed for appointment represent all sections of the society and meet the conditions required for the appointment. He said a number of them are academics and some have experience in the oil sector. The reported appointments have triggered a controversy, with a number of newspapers targeting Omair and accusing him of appointing his relatives and others who backed his election campaign as a candidate in parliamentary elections. The minister categorically denied that he exploited his political post to appoint any of his relatives or friends.
Meanwhile, a parliamentary panel that probed allegations of illegal distribution of farmland to citizens yesterday completed its report and called for referring a number of officials to the public prosecution. Member of the committee MP Khalil Abul said the probe reached a conclusion of suspected profiteering in the Public Authority for Agriculture Affairs and Fish Resources (PAAAFR). The lawmaker said the committee recommended that the entire issue be referred to the public prosecution for legal investigation.
It also recommended that all officials at PAAAFR including the former director and the current acting director be referred to the public prosecution. The case came to light several months ago when allegations were made that hundreds of state-owned plots of farmland and those housing stables for animals were distributed to people who do not meet the required preconditions. The decision of the committee also calls on the concerned minister to suspend all those the panel called for sending to the public prosecution, Abul said.
The committee also wants the concerned minister to supply the names of those who illegally benefited from the land since 2006. Abul said the committee called on the authorities to withdraw state land granted to those who do not fulfill the requirements and ask the National Assembly speaker to sue all officials who provided false or insufficient information to the parliamentary probe panel during the investigation. In the meantime, MP Nabeel Al-Fadhl yesterday proposed a draft law calling to end all forms of subsidies on electricity, water and fuel provided to state departments.
The bill stipulates that all forms of subsidies on these services be suspended immediately for all government offices and departments, saying that the policy of subsidizing services given to government departments has not been successful. The new proposal does not apply to individuals.
