The Electoral Commission for National Assembly Elections in Kuwait has disqualified 46 parliamentary candidates, sources in Kuwait have revealed. Reports carried in the local media said the decision was taken on Tuesday.

According to Kuwait’s Al-Jarida newspaper, the reasons behind the disqualification include criminal cases, health condition, failure to correct their status and loss of integrity.

The newspaper said that 30 candidates were disqualified for failure to meet certain conditions, including Sheikh Malik al-Sabah and former MP Abdul Hamid Dashti, who were disqualified due to the explanatory note of the Constitution prohibiting members of the ruling family from running in the parliamentary elections.
