A Brain Storming Session

With the escalation of events in the country
Is Kuwaiti parliament dissolution becoming an inevitable matter? If so, then what do you think the implications of such act would be on democracy in the country especially to issues concerning women’s political rights?

Your intellectual participation is highly appreciated

    how about if during the no-parliamant phase the voting law is passed!
    wouldnt that make democracy such a rediculously impossible game?
    politics are confusing enough as is!

    anyway i never liked this parliament so let it be dissolved w b60,000 6gag!

    I’m not sure if the government would pass the voting law during the no-parliament phase though, and if it did how could that be handled drugging the next assembly. It’s just getting more complicated, and you are not being selfish, I think that this parliament is the worst interims of the combination it holds, and I have never seen a weaker government, or is it just another game?

    I’m not much for politics but I think I second Uz and you AyyA. But who’s to say the next parliament is going to be any better? Can you predict such things?

    I can predict that it will remain the same, if not worse, if the voting areas stayed the same. The system is constantly encouraging tribalism and prejudices. It has its base in minister’s selection in the first place, they are not selected for their qualifications, but as what they term good enough to keep the balance in different ethnic groups. Now who would blame the members of the parliament who grilled Aljarallah for thinking the same? And it surprises me when Sheikh Sabah declares that he is annoyed with the undemocratic grilling, who brought there people to power? And who started ethnic discrimination? And what democracy are you talking about, in a country when no one even has the right of thought, let alone speech.
    We need lessons in democracy sister, starting from the top of the pyramid

    Let them dissolve it and i-fukoona minhum wa ashkalhum!
    The women’s vote will never get off the ground like this. Again, I knew this was gonna happen. Not only that, this parliament is particularly petty and useless. USELESS. It is nothing but a forum of ignorance and ego’s! Sometimes you have to be Machiavellian to move things ahead. This time, I think something positive will come of parliaments dissolution! The circumstances are now a little bit different, I won’t get into the reasons why I believe this is so, but I think everyone knows what I mean.

    Well, I guess we still have to wait and see what happens next Monday when Sharar is grilled, and Tuesday when municipality law is subjected to alteration, I guess things will be clearer by then.
