Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Defense and Acting Minister of Interior Sheikh Talal Khaled Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah directed to raise the registration age for those wishing to enroll in the honor of military service, such as officer cadets who hold a university degree (bachelor’s degree) at Ali Al-Sabah College.
In a press statement on Saturday, The Defense Ministry said that this comes as a translation of the political leadership’s directives to allow Kuwaiti youth to serve their country, as they are one of the most important pillars of work, construction and renaissance for the future of Kuwait, with the blessing and direct support of HH the Prime Minister Lieutenant-General Sheikh Ahmad Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al- Sabah.
The minister also directed the competent authorities in the Ministry of Interior to work on opening registration for all university majors for those wishing to enroll in the Saad Al-Abdullah Academy for Security Sciences, with an amendment to the minimum rating for holders of university qualifications, in addition to adjusting the acceptance rates for high school certificate holders so that they are uniform with what is in place in college.
The ministry stated that this step also comes in consideration of the exceptional circumstances that the country has experienced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting restrictions that prevented the people of the country from accepting the honor of military service.
