Try­ing to reach the par­lia­ment through non­demo­cratic means is a se­vere vi­o­la­tion

Kuwait Times - - FROM THE ARABIC PRESS -

com­mu­nity or his country. Try­ing to reach the par­lia­ment through non-demo­cratic means is a se­vere vi­o­la­tion, shows a lack of un­der­stand­ing and do­ing the ex­act op­po­site of democ­racy. These lit­eral beg­gars are, by no means, not any bet­ter than other fel­lowtribes­men. They are not more com­pe­tent than oth­ers who are not as good in tribal beg­ging, peo­ple who are against such meth­ods that to­tally con­tra­dict the true mean­ing of democ­racy and only fol­low the right demo­cratic paths in ad­dress­ing their vot­ers. They would never beg and dis­play their feel­ings and emo­tions, play­ing on tribal fa­nati­cism, hu­mil­i­a­tion and shed­ding some tears.

It is very ob­vi­ous that those us­ing such meth­ods are only seek­ing their own personal gains and in­ter­ests. They are not in­ter­ested in ba­sic pub­lic con­cerns. They do not care about the peo­ple and the cur­rent po­lit­i­cal cir­cum­stances, clearly men­tioned in the de­cree of dis­solv­ing the pre­vi­ous par­lia­ment.

We have never seen such mo­bi­liza­tion for par­lia­men­tary elec­tions, which is done in a man­ner that is very provoca­tive and harm­ful to na­tional feel­ings of ev­ery Kuwaiti who pos­sesses the least amount of pa­tri­o­tism. Peo­ple need to be more aware, se­ri­ous and de­voted to democ­racy than can­di­dates who are clearly and only af­ter win­ning a par­lia­men­tary seat re­gard­less of how they do it.
