One can say there is democracy in Kuwait as there is a parliament whose members are elected and a government which is held accountable by the members of parliament. Some sort of criticism in Kuwaiti press is also allowed. At the same time, one can say Kuwait resembles a state where rights are deprived rights and there are legal violations. Its government is not elected and its media outlets who commit “violations” have their permits withdrawn.
Frankly, I do not think the statements of a silly member of parliament like Dashti are significant. However, his act of inciting public opinion is dangerous and may harm Kuwait and the regionAbdulrahman al-Rashed
