Kuwaiti ruler dissolves parliament, setting up new elections; Islamists poised to win again

Sunday, October 7, 8:11 AM

KUWAIT CITY — Kuwait’s ruler dissolved parliament Sunday, a step toward ending months of political gridlock and calling the second elections this year that could again swing in favor of opposition groups led by Islamist factions.

The move by Kuwait’s Western-allied emir, announced on state-run media, followed a failed attempt last month by the government to overturn a voting district law that appeared to favor the opposition. New elections must now be held within 60 days.

..The Islamist-led opposition scored a massive victory in the February legislative polls but four months later the constitutional court nullified the election, scrapped parliament and reinstated the 2009 assembly.

The cabinet of the oil-rich Gulf state recommended on Wednesday that the parliament be dissolved.

Under Kuwait's constitution, fresh general elections must be held within 60 days or before December 7. The forthcoming polls will be the second this year and the fifth since June 2006.

The cabinet said the decision to dissolve parliament was based on the fact that the assembly failed to hold any meeting after it was revived despite being invited to meet on July 31 and August 7.

The reinstated parliament was boycotted by the opposition on the grounds that at least 13 pro-government MPs in the 50-member house faced allegations of receiving hundreds of millions of dollars in bribes... [link to www.middle-east-online.com]
