Already Ministry of Health imposed extra 2+5=7KD on expatriates to visit poly clinics, even though MOH is already charging health Insurance from all expatriates. 50% Price increase in Electricity and Water will result hike in flat rents and increase on all goods, which will be unbearable for majority expatriates. Price increase in every service should be gradual and minimal so that expatriates salaries can be adjusted with employers.
