Kuwait parliament dissolved?   1 comment

Al Jazeera TV reported on Tuesday evening that the Kuwaiti Emir,Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmed al-Sabah, has decided to dissolve the Kuwaiti parliament, once more.

Apparently this is to save his nephew, Sheikh Nasser al-Mohammad al-Sabah, the Prime Minister of Kuwait, from the “grilling” that some of the MPs are going to do to him in the parliament, over his government’s handling of the economic crisis.

There is some or the other reason to grill the PM. Earlier is was some other issue and now it is the way that he is handling the economic crisis.

The Kuwaiti democracy system needs to mature more, if it wants to progress. After all, it is after a healthy debate, that the best options (which are acceptable to the majority) come out to handle a situation.

But was ails the Kuwaiti democracy, as reported in the newspapers, it is the self interests of many in the parliament, rather than that of their nation. Lincoln rightly said that “It is not what your  country can give you, but what you can give to your country, that matters most.”

What is needed is, to rise above the petty politics and join hands in making constructive policies that are in the interest of the nation.

So folks in the parliament, consider your colleagues, as a part of your family and work towards uplifting Kuwait and make it a model  for the world to follow, in these difficult times.

Long live Kuwait and its people.
