Deepening of the Kuwaiti malaise

"... Now it is clear that Kuwait has entered uncharted territory in its political landscape. It is abundantly clear too that the new parliament and the divisive mood over the electoral law and necessity decrees, as well as the government-vs-opposition showdowns, will be solved neither through a boycott of the elections nor by participating in them... The opposition is out because it chose to boycott the election and it will thus have no role to influence the debate from within...Furthermore, the new parliament is over-represented by minorities, especially the Shiites who have aligned with the government and have seen their numbers increase..."
