Kuwaitis back to the polls to elect their parliament

Kuwaitis elect members of their parliament on Tuesday, in the seventh legislative ballot since 2012.

More than 793,000 voters are called to the polls to choose 50 deputies, after the invalidation of the September 2022 elections. Some 207 people, including 13 women, are in the running.

Polling stations opened at 8 a.m. local time (5 a.m. GMT) and will close at 10 p.m. (7 p.m. GMT).

The results of the poll will be announced on Wednesday, according to the official Kuna news agency.

In March, the Constitutional Court invalidated the 2022 legislative elections, ruling in favor of restoring the previous Parliament, which emerged from the 2020 ballot.

Kuwait has a Parliament, elected for four years, with broad legislative powers.
