Shoura to decide on govt staff running businesses

JEDDAH: The Shoura Council is set to discuss again a proposal to allow government officials to work in the trade and commerce sector, a local publication reported.
The matter will come up for debate during the next session to be held on Tuesday, which involves the amendment of the 13th article of the Civil Service system. The Management and Human Resources Committee at the Shoura Council had turned down proposed recommendation on an earlier occasion.
Speaking in favor of the motion, Shoura Council member, Dr. Ahmad Al-Zailaie, who has submitted the proposal, said: “The proposal to allow government employees to work in the commerce and trade business as per specified conditions will improve their living conditions.”
It will help them find another source of income, he said.
Al-Zailaie observed a favorable rule in this direction will allow the government officials to benefit from the time they have available after work hours.
“Such a proposal will limit family disputes and help eliminate commercial concealment practices,” he said.
