Thanks.  But Kuwait is normally UTC+3, so UTC+2 would be the wrong direction for DST.  It should be UTC+4.

Or are you saying they would advance two hours to UTC+5?

Hello Matt,

This is a bill suggesting adopting DST, +2 hours, between first day of April and last day of September of each year, the tweet wrongfully says August.

It seems that it did pass in the Parliament, but waiting approval from prince Sabbah.

No further news or announcement found.

Apparently Kuwait is considering introducing DST next year.  It has never done so before.

I can't find a more official reference at the moment, but worth keeping an eye on:


Any Arabic native speakers able to read the text in the images? If so, a summary would be appreciated.
