Candidate defends expats’ rights: We can’t live without foreigners

KUWAIT: Hussein Faridoon is a candidate from the second district running in the National Assembly elections for the first time. He is an author and has published three books. He is also an inventor who has four international and 30 local certificates for his inventions. He has faced many obstacles while registering his research papers. His son has also faced similar problems registering his inventions. So Faridoon has decided to run to help young people and talented Kuwaitis.

His slogan is ‘I’m the servant of my country, its people and the environment’. “I’m working on more research papers for my country. I discussed with professors some issues, such as the quantity of oxygen that a person needs for breathing per minute, which is one liter, while a vehicle consumes two liters per cylinder, which means that a four-cylinder vehicle equals the oxygen consumption of eight people. This is why people feel nervous when stuck in a traffic jam, which results in various diseases and health complications. Therefore, I want to work on solving the problem of traffic,” Faridoon told Kuwait Times.

Four hours
He has some suggestions. “I suggest increasing the salaries of employees who work during the day to encourage them. I also suggest decreasing working hours to only four, so employees won’t experience the harshest heat during June, July and August. They can work from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm, as the heat gets worse after noon,” he pointed out. Faridoon wonders why people only talk about the petrol price hike and not the increasing prices of other products such as food. “If I reach the parliament, I will demand distributing fuel coupons to citizens worth least KD 20 per month, equal to 200 liters,” he vowed.
Regarding education, he said that there is a great shortage and failure in this field. “It’s shameful that a student is very weak in English, especially after graduating from school and registering at the university. Teachers are responsible in the first place, who should be punished if there are more weak students in their class,” stressed Faridoon.
