The Parliamentary Experience Challenges in Kuwait

Abstract

The relation between the two authorities, the legislative and executive, has been, and still, representing a harmonious dialectic sometimes and a contradictory one other time, influenced, between this and that, by the relations of conflict and cooperation. The Kuwaiti parliamentary experience does not go outside this context, as it witnesses challenges and attractions among the parliamentary scene spectra. This lies in the political dialectic hierarchy in the relation between the government and the parliament, which is based in its origins on the tribal values that portrayed the Kuwaiti society and painted its political scene.This research tries to study the obstacles and challenges on the level of values and practices in a tribal society such as Kuwait, in which the ruling authority and political forces try to look like a democratic modern society in a region where tribal nature prevails.
