Kuwait has a charade that is called a democracy where it is a pure bureaucracy.
life in Kuwait gives me frustration and anger at the same time, alongside the feeling of anxiety after the International Monetary Fund statement that Kuwait's spending habits would surpass the revenues in 2017. This would lead us to a deficit and becoming bankrupt as a country because of the idiocy of the way Kuwait is managed that falls on the shoulders of our unqualified head of government that is only making politics in Kuwait even worse that it already is because of his lack of experience!
Living in Kuwait can be a bless and a hassle at the time. It is a blessing from god that we live in a petroleum country, but it is sad how the government or the decision makers wasted the income that we are having from selling oil in useless places nonetheless what or where are they being spent or directed and it is consuming most of its revenue as a country but with no tendency to develop the country or to diversify the resources of the country's income.
We mainly depend on oil as an income in Kuwait. Oil prices with its availability and its importance is being threatened with the constant studies and the on-going development of alternative energy plans that is non clear in the near future which might lead to the probability of losing the main source of income in Kuwait which would take it through a dark path of the unknown and a great depression phase. One might think/suggest that we go back to pearl diving, eh?
What we need is for the government to cooperate with the parliament for once in their life and not become ministers/head of governments while expecting that everything would run smoothly like it used to be before without being accountable for anything that they might do wrong. The Kuwaiti Government can not work with the same mentality and treat its citizens with the same mentality for more than 50 years as of today. People have changed, democracy have developed, the movement of the way of thinking towards life in Kuwait have also changed. But, the government still thinks and possibly believes that they can get away with what they see fit for them without taking in to account what the population is asking for hence the current rage in the streets of Kuwait. WE NEED CHANGE, WE NEED REFORM.
Change comes from within. So, in order for the government to expect a good treatment and cooperation from the MPs and from the population as a whole, they need to show that they are there to develop and improve the current standing financial situation in Kuwait and not just work as a vacuum for money. This would show that there is work towards development/reform which might gives us hope as a population that our government might actually succeed through applying what they have promised us to do in their so called agenda and that is at least a start in which we can create hope again towards the promises that the government never kept but were born to break every promise they have done.
I can talk for ages but, talking is cheap and actually applying changes are what matters the most to show how much our government is committed and willing to develop and enhance Kuwait's capability of becoming a business hub.
CHANGE AND REFORM WILL NEVER HAPPEN IN KUWAIT AS LONG AS THE DIRECTION OF THE GOVERNMENT TOWARDS POLITICS AND DEALING WITH A CRISIS IS ALWAYS WEEK AND DOWNGRADING; SPECIALLY FOR A YOUNG CONSTITUTION THAT IS DEALT WITH AS IF IT'S A JOKE THAT IS ONLY APPLIED ONCE NEEDED WHILE FORGETTING THAT THERE ARE CONSTITUTIONAL LAWS THAT ARE BEING BROKEN AND STEPPED ON EVERYDAY.
By the way, to refresh your memory or in case you have not heard about what I'm going to say, Please read the following:
- OUR PRIME MINISTER/HEAD OF GOVERNMENT, JABER AL-MUBARAK AL-HAMAD AL-SABAH, HAS AN ELEMENTARY DEGREE
(AND WE EXPECT CHANGE AND REFORM)
Till Next Time,
