Meanwhile, MP Khalid Al Ansi accused the increase in insurance amount announced last week as illegal. Al Ansi explained that the decision to increase mandatory car insurance fees by the Insurance Regulatory Unit is in violation of Article R of Law No. 67/1976, which empowers the Ministry of Interior to specify regulations and conditions on car insurance. Therefore, he requested the Minister of Interior Sheikh Talal Khalid Al Ahmed Al Sabah to intervene in this matter and annul the decision. The authorities have decided to suspend the increase in the insurance amount in the context of widespread discussions and protests in this regard on social media. The decision of the Insurance Regulatory Unit is to take further steps after discussing with the Ministry of Home Affairs in this regard.
