21 election petitions filed, more expected

21 election petitions filed, more expected :
  • Kuwait News

Former MPs and candidates who failed to win seats in the national assembly election last month yesterday filed 15 petitions challenging the election results raising the number of petitions received so far by the constitutional court to 21.

The court, whose rulings are final, has only one more day on next Sunday to receive more petitions and then the door for petitions will be shut.

Yesterday’s petitions included challenges from four former MPs Youssef Al-Zalzalah, Ahmad Al-Azmi, Mohammad Al-Barrak and Hamad Matar. Most of the petitions called for recounting of votes.

The difference between those who got the last two or three seats in each constituency and those who came in the 11th, 12th or even 13th place is sometimes a few dozen votes.

The constitutional court will study each petition separately before deciding whether they are credible enough to be investigated. It may take the court several months to issue its rulings.
