THERE is no doubt that the conditions of the region, the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and the nature of the political situation in the country during the past stage have greatly affected the performance of the constitutional authorities. The blatant breach of the principle of separation among the authorities by the National Assembly when it imposed its will on the government led to several crises that exploded in succession in the recent months, such that the country has been portrayed as a hotbed of corruption and the corrupt.
Yes, the authorities have intertwined to an extent that it has raised public concerns, but the decision-maker is not affected by what is rumored especially on social media and the conventional media. This has psychologically affected the entire Cabinet as if those who use these means impose their desires on it.
Today, after completing the pillars of the political leadership through the assumption of the throne of the emirate by His Highness the Amir Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmad, and the ruling family recommending Sheikh Meshaal Al-Ahmad for the mandate of the Crown Prince, all that Kuwait needs politically, economically and socially is to prepare for the new path, with the hope of getting rid of the negative aspects of that stage, which we are not going to talk about in detail today.
Rather, honesty requires reminders of it, so that decisiveness and firmness take their natural course in light of the two Kuwaiti figures who are known for their wisdom, quick decision-making capability, and their ability to not yield to opportunistic selfish students.
Today, we are at the beginning of a phase that has its own characteristics, especially in the desired reform processes at all levels. This is after the legislative authority exhausted the state with laws that are based on the interests of MPs who are mainly concerned about how to prolong their life in parliamentary membership, even if it is at the expense of the future generations and public money.
The most important pillar for the success of this stage must be the separation of powers, preventing one from penetrating the other and for the leadership to stand as an impregnable dam in the face of this matter.
We have in the biography of its pillars many signs indicating firmness in the decision. That is why the Kuwaitis have begun to breathe a sigh of relief, hoping to get them out of the spin in the cycle of social, economic and political decline caused by misunderstanding the meaning of freedom and democracy.
As for the bullying seen on social media to form a popular pressure force, it is clear that it is a march through keys that serve certain influential people or MP or minister who is unable to exercise his natural role and preserve the trust entrusted to him.
It is true that the leadership has its views, but such pumping creates popular confusion and provides free services to those caught in troubled waters, even in democratic countries that are more ancient than Kuwait such as Britain where the area of freedom is much wider but the decision remains for the government, as well as in the United States of America.
The intervention of such media in public affairs has reached much farther than expected, but the decision of the White House is the decisive factor. The same is the case in the rest of the world. Therefore, all that is required today is to strengthen that belief in Kuwait, which is what some tried to destabilize in the previous stage.
May God bless our Amir the firm and trustworthy His Highness Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmad, and the Crown Prince His Highness Sheikh Meshaal Al-Ahmad, who puts the law before every other consideration and believes the homeland cannot be elevated except through firmness, determination and swift decision-making.
Finally, as a citizen who loves his country, I will be very pleased if the leadership of the Council of Ministers is merged with the mandate of the Crown Prince to give the executive authority the necessary prestige and appreciation with the ability to move so that it will not be subject to parliamentary penetration.
