KUWAITI PARLIAMENT PASSES REFORMS TO SPORTS LAW

KUWAIT, Apr 23 – Kuwait National Assembly, yesterday, passed key amendments to the sports law but suspended the adoption of the single vote system in sports bodies’ elections, until the legal panel has reviewed the provision.

The approval came amid strong criticism by a majority of lawmakers of officials overseeing most sports activities, blaming them for Kuwait’s retreat in almost all sports competitions.

MP Ahmad Al-Qudhaibi said, the new amendments are expected to improve the level of sports in the country, but insisted that there is a need to privatise sports clubs
