The administration added, no one will be allowed to cast the ballot without the original Kuwaiti nationality certificate or a replacement for a lost or damaged document is obtained. Meanwhile, around 3,500 trainees, officers and non-commissioned officers are eligible to vote in the upcoming parliamentary election; since their names are included in the lists of voters, reports Al- Rai daily quoting sources.

Sources confirmed this is legal, given that the abovementioned citizens have yet to complete their courses and no decision has been issued regarding their appointment as military personnel. Sources clarified that all those enrolled in military colleges under the ministries of Defense and Interior are allowed to vote, because they have not graduated from the colleges.
