Kuwait court to consider election results in March

February 29, 2012

Kuwait’s Constitutional Court will start on March 13 looking into challenges to the results of the parliamentary elections.

Candidates and voters in the First, Second, Third and Fourth constituencies had challenged the results of the elections held on February 2 to elect 50 members to the parliament. Kuwait has five electoral constituencies.

The court on Tuesday said that it would consider the challenges in the First, Second and Fourth constituencies on March 13 and those of the Third Constituency on March 14.

The elections resulted in a clear domination by Islamists and tribes.

None of the women who ran in the elections was able to secure a seat in a reverse of fortunes over 2009 when four women made history by being elected to the parliament for the first time in Kuwait’s history.
