Un­end­ing spirit of giv­ing crowns demo­cratic prac­tice

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

KUWAIT: The con­ti­nu­ity of the ‘spirit of giv­ing’, even amid the hard times of ten­sion and crises in the re­gion, has al­ways been a ma­jor trait of demo­cratic prac­tice in Kuwait. In fact, this demo­cratic prac­tice is based on a dual prin­ci­ple, and co­op­er­a­tion be­tween the two au­thor­i­ties, that have al­ways been hard work­ing, to­gether, for the good of the na­tion.

Since Kuwait gained in­de­pen­dence in 1961, both au­thor­i­ties rushed to lay down the bases of an in­sti­tu­tional rul­ing sys­tem, turn­ing the country from a sim­ple tribal com­mu­nity into a “state”, with an in­te­grated po­lit­i­cal sys­tem of leg­isla­tive, ex­ec­u­tive and ju­di­ciary au­thor­i­ties.

The Sief Palace, where the cab­i­net is seated, has come be to a sym­bol of the ex­ec­u­tive au­thor­ity. Ac­cord­ing to Kuwait Con­sti­tu­tion, the cab­i­net is en­trusted with draw­ing up the gov­ern­ment’s gen­eral pol­icy, and fol­low­ing up im­ple­men­ta­tion of such pol­icy.

The Na­tional Assem­bly (par­lia­ment) rep­re­sents the leg­isla­tive au­thor­ity, and is tasked with leg­is­la­tion, and the po­lit­i­cal and fi­nan­cial af­fairs of the state. Amid the com­pre­hen­sive re­nais­sance Kuwaitis are em­brac­ing, vot­ers are get­ting ready for the Novem­ber 26 elec­tions to choose 50 MPs who can carry on with the es­sen­tial role of the leg­is­la­ture in the fu­ture, which re­quires join­ing all ef­forts and pow­ers to lead the country ahead to a bright fu­ture. — KUNA
