Kuwaitis Attitudes Towards Some Major Political Issues: A Field Study

Auther : Dr. Abdulla M. Al-Anzi

     This study is designed to examine the Kuwaiti attitudes and opinions about some debatable local political issues. The findings reveal that there is a consensus on some main issues such as the principles for passing laws based only on the constitution. However, the study shows that the relationship between the legislative and executives authorities is very disappointing. In addition, the sample participants seemed to be confused about the issue of democracy according to the western concept and Islamic SHARIA understanding. The study also finds out that the tribal citizens in the out skirts of Kuwait accept secondary elections before the official ones, however, they refuse to accept that election can be run on parties basis. Nevertheless, all Kuwaiti citizens support the idea of having an elected national assembly.

     The study also shows that women support sticking to constitution principles more than men, and following democratic liberal regime system. It is clear that university graduates are supportive of deriving laws from constitution, and prefer democratic western systems. They are also in favor of elections that base on political party system. The study makes it clear that the ancestral Islamic SALAFI groups are against the constitution laws and support Islamic sharia law.
