Some women candidates promised equal rights for wives of non-Kuwaitis
Some men candidates promised waiving all outstanding loans
Some women promised grandiouse reforms to the political & judicial systems
Some men promised bribes
Some women went on Satellite TV in front of political animals and made a mockery of themselves
Some Government-backed candidates were supported by ex-minsters who were at one time accused of accepting kickbacks, bribes & wife-beaters!
Some 'has-been" opposition candidates were backed by other opposition candidates who are themselves has-beens!
Some regarded the entire affair as an excuse to stay up late roaming around in the streets.
People listened attentively, closely and quietly. People made constructed opinions and made voting decisions, people even campaigned their support to other people. I, as well as others of similar mindsets, believed that the woman's vote would change - forever - the way Kuwaiti Politics was viewed and practiced.
Well, this is what we got:
Shocked & Stunned!!
