Kuwait Crisis: Kuwait’s new Emir Sheikh Mishaal Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah has dissolved the country’s parliament for four years. Since then, the danger of this country becoming autocratic has increased. However, while announcing the dissolution of Parliament, the Amir said that he will not allow the country’s democracy to be misused. With this he has taken control of the country into his hands. This country of Western Asia, situated on the western shore of the Persian Gulf, is the only country among the Gulf countries which has an elected parliament. The action to dissolve the current Parliament is the result of a long-running political deadlock. Due to political deadlock, Parliament has been dissolved four times in the last five years.

In his address, the Amir also said, “The recent turmoil in Kuwait’s political landscape has reached a level where we cannot remain silent, therefore we must take all necessary measures keeping in mind the best interests of the country and its people.” Needed.” He said that he cannot allow the country to be ruined by using democracy at any cost. Let us tell you that Amir is the most influential and powerful position in Kuwait.

Before this, Kuwait’s Parliament had been dissolved twice in 1976 and 1986, but this time the Parliament was dissolved within a month of the elections held in April. Especially when the first meeting of the new Parliament was to be held on 13 May. In fact, the MPs of the new Parliament that came into effect after the elections had started accusing the government of corruption, while on the other hand the cabinet ministers were accusing the Parliament of creating obstacles in the way of taking economic decisions.

Now with the dissolution of the Parliament, all the powers of the National Assembly (Parliament) have gone to the Amir. He has formed a cabinet for cooperation in governance. Let us tell you that due to political crisis and deadlock, the government of Kuwait was not able to take loan, due to which the government employees were not even able to get their salaries. On the other hand, this country makes huge profits by selling crude oil. Despite this there is an economic crisis. The main reason for this is corruption.

Middle East Eye quoted Shawn Yom, an expert on Middle East politics at Temple University, as saying that the current emir has indicated that he is personally giving more priority to issues of national development and stability in the country than to the previous two rulers. Unlike others, he will not shy away from taking drastic steps in the interest of the country. The emir, who came to power after the death of his predecessor Nawaf al-Ahmad al Jaber in December, has not yet selected a crown prince.

Analysts believe that the rich can take harsh action against political opponents. According to Yom, if the emir does this, not only will the country move towards autocracy, but this step could harm Kuwait’s unique tradition of pluralism and liberalism, which could be extraordinary and dangerous not only for the Gulf but for the entire Arab World. . There is also a possibility that Kuwait may adopt the system of UAE. If this happens, it could be a major threat to the democratic values ​​and traditions of Kuwait, which has a long and storied tradition of democracy and elections.
