Pop­u­lar eval­u­a­tion

Kuwait Times - - FROM THE ARABIC PRESS - By Ner­main Al-Houti

It might be a re­ward­ing idea for Na­tional Assem­bly mem­bers to dis­cuss at the start of the new par­lia­men­tary term, to be ap­proved and put into ef­fect for the new Assem­bly and its new mem­bers. The idea came out of a ques­tion, which is: All state em­ploy­ees are eval­u­ated by their su­pe­ri­ors, so why are MPs not eval­u­ated? This idea is built on one ba­sic foun­da­tion, which is that Assem­bly mem­bers should be eval­u­ated by the peo­ple, who have the right to eval­u­ate their MPs through their par­lia­men­tary per­for­mance and the ful­fill­ment of peo­ple’s and con­stituents’ re­quire­ments.

The idea is very sim­ple, which is to have a com­put­er­ized “pop­u­lar eval­u­a­tion” pro­gram, and should be as fol­lows:

1- Name of the mem­ber of par­lia­ment, his con­stituency and the com­mit­tees he serves on at the par­lia­ment along with his CV and the num­ber of votes he re­ceived.

2- De­tail­ing all what the MP had promised his vot­ers when he was a can­di­date and all the is­sues that he men­tioned dur­ing the cam­paign.

Then peo­ple should be al­lowed to eval­u­ate the MP and his con­tri­bu­tions to solve the peo­ple’s prob­lems ev­ery six months, so that an in­di­vid­ual can read the achieve­ments and the is­sues that were pre­sented dur­ing his cam­paign and what he pre­sented and achieved dur­ing his pres­ence in par­lia­ment.

This is the idea that could be in the fu­ture an elec­tion re­quire­ment for can­di­dates in their cam­paigns, as the pop­u­lar eval­u­a­tion will be a true re­flec­tion of each can­di­date who de­serves the vote to en­ter the par­lia­ment and serve the peo­ple. This will put a vig­i­lant eye over all mem­bers and the Assem­bly, and the eval­u­a­tion will be a sword that will cut the heads of those who join par­lia­ment to achieve their own pri­vate agen­das. —Trans­lated by Kuwait Times
