A mes­sage to can­di­dates

Kuwait Times - - FROM THE ARABIC PRESS - By Saad Al-Motesh

The most im­por­tant state­ments nowa­days are those made by can­di­dates in quest of a par­lia­men­tary seat. One can see them crit­i­ciz­ing the ex­ec­u­tives and ac­cus­ing them of dere­lic­tion. Some of them might make state­ments play­ing on peo­ple’s emo­tions and many of them will even suc­ceed in do­ing so.

Some of these state­ments are only made to ad­dress vot­ers’ feel­ings and win a par­lia­men­tary seat, which is a very im­por­tant po­si­tion, el­e­vat­ing the sta­tus of a win­ner be­cause he will be one of 50 peo­ple with spe­cial priv­i­leges that are in­ac­ces­si­ble to other cit­i­zens. All doors will be open for them and they will go through con­sid­er­able so­cial and fi­nan­cial changes. Still, will any­one buy these tricks? I hope can­di­dates will not do these tricks for the sheep they will serve to vot­ers for din­ner at their elec­toral cam­paign head­quar­ters. What I mean here is filling their state­ments with talk about re­form and fight­ing cor­rup­tion, as many of them claim.

Dear can­di­dates, let me re­mind you of one thing be­fore can­di­dacy reg­is­tra­tion closes. In fact, it is a very fright­en­ing thing for any­body seek­ing a po­si­tion to move up the po­lit­i­cal lad­der. Almighty Al­lah said that par­adise is wait­ing for those who do not seek higher po­si­tions in this world. So, if you are among those Almighty Al­lah men­tioned in his holy book, you must know that you will be ac­count­able for your deeds and we have no con­trol over you.

Dear can­di­dates, you can al­ways de­ceive us by shout­ing and wail­ing about keen­ness on greater good and this na­tion’s and peo­ple’s in­ter­ests. We might even help you achieve your goals with our good in­ten­tions be­cause we know noth­ing about what ac­tu­ally goes on in your minds. None­the­less, will you ever de­ceive the cre­ator who knows and sees each and ev­ery­thing? I am sure that none of you will and that none of you doubts Al­lah’s abil­ity to know what is on your minds and in your hearts!

All doors will be open for them and they will go through con­sid­er­able so­cial and fi­nan­cial changes
