Government, the exit from the Assembly is good for Kuwait – ARAB TIMES
As long as the quota system is the criterion for forming a government, there is no doubt that such a government will be like the current one where everyone sings as they please. As long as MPs’ only concern is extortion and exploitation of cabinet weakness for lack of solidarity, the country will inevitably descend to this unenviable current level, and the situation will get worse.
For this reason, it was no surprise that the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Petroleum, the Ministry of Public Works, the Ministry of Education and the rest of the institutions failed. This is because each minister works according to the interests of the influential person who pushed for his appointment, or he works for himself and his interests, so that Kuwait and its members are the least of their concerns.
On the other hand, when deputies are elected on the basis of tribalism, sectarianism or vote-buying, it is impossible to produce a National Assembly that legislates for the benefit of the country and its people; rather, it limits its work to the capitalization of profits.
Therefore, what the country is currently experiencing, according to the majority of public opinion, is like playing in extra time, as each team tries to win one goal over the other, indifferent to the people and their plight.
The Prime Minister stands as a spectator. He is not trying to settle things and get the country out of the tunnel in which he has been trapped for nearly two years, when he is primarily concerned with managing the government apparatus.
On the other side, the deputies continue to make gains prohibited by the blackmail and the brandishing of arrests, which quickly subdue the ministers, forcing them to surrender in advance, presenting agreements on the plates of public money, and wishing good luck to the lucky ones who received the blessings of “wastas” and offerings.
In the midst of this chaos, only the commoners are the victims, especially the owners of small and medium-sized businesses, and other initiatives that have gone bankrupt or their owners have migrated to neighboring countries, while their support fund s’ is turned into a source of enrichment for the privileged, or wasted on government and private parliamentary travel, and the money has not reached those who deserve it.
This is an example of what the country is suffering from in the face of ministerial indifference and the lack of initiative of His Highness the Prime Minister to listen to the opinion of the population. Even if he is listening, he will not do anything because it seems that he is afraid of the mistake. At the same time, the birds of plunder are flying everywhere, at a time when the question of the exhaustion of the public reserve represents a nightmare for the government, which is immersed in the search for the sex of the angels and does not seek to get out. the financial and economic situation.
Perhaps it should be mentioned that we are no different from other Gulf companies in terms of culture, customs and traditions. While we all aspire to the same hopes that our countries are to be at the forefront, Kuwait remains different from its peers in terms of having more than one decision, in addition to its weakness in terms of treatment. frontal problems. This caused the country to continue to regress, while its peers progressed rapidly.
Faced with this situation, the people of this country regard the political leaders alone as their savior from the crisis, and not a weak government and opportunistic MPs. This is because both parties have proven their inability to work, and they have mastered the art of wasting opportunities, and proven their lack of awareness of the risks.
