Kuwaiti nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) have always been playing a significant role in serving the society, addressing its problems and monitoring political events and public activities, including election observation.
The Kuwaiti cabinet has recently asked several NGOs to partake in watching the country’s forthcoming parliamentary elections due on June, only out of its commitment to ensuring fair and transparent elections.
In this context, Kuwait Journalists Association Chairman Adnan Al-Rashed said that the cabinet had recently entrusted the association, among others, with watching the next vote in a highly commended step.
In a statement to KUNA, he boasted that his agency has been one of the effective tools and means of observing parliamentary elections in the country since mid-1960s. The cabinet’s positive and praiseworthy move reflects the state’s confidence in Kuwaiti national organizations and their national role.
