KUWAIT CITY, March 28: A number of citizens gathered at Erada Square on Monday night to express their objection to the decision of the Constitutional Court to reinstate the 2020 Parliament and nullify the 2022 Parliament.
Dr Anwar Hayati, who were among those present at the gathering, stressed that Erada Square will remain the final resort for citizens to convey their messages and protect their will. He said the dissolution of the 2020 Parliament was the response of the political leadership to the people’s demands and the 2022 Parliament reflected the citizens’ will. He pointed out that all authorities must respect the nation’s will, including the judiciary. He added the decision of the Constitutional Court was unexpected. Hayati strongly objected to the reinstatement of the 2020 Parliament, which he described as “shameful and corrupt”. He affirmed that he will continue attending the gathering at Erada Square until the 2020 Parliament is dissolved and Speaker Marzouq Al-Ghanim is dismissed along with his supporters among the lawmakers. He suggested that a national dialogue must follow to reform the electoral system.
Citizen Ahmed Suhail disclosed that he attended the gathering to send a message that his vote was stolen. He asserted the 2022 Parliament represented the citizen’s will which must be protected. He added the government did not cooperate with the Parliament, as it rather decided to boycott the sessions in order to hinder parliamentary achievements.
Another citizen, who requested for anonymity, holds the government responsible for the deterioration in all fields. He said the roads in the country has turned from bad to worse in the last five years. He stressed the need to end the disputes, which have negatively affected the citizens’ interests.
