Unending spirit of giving crowns democratic practice
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
