Kuwait hopeful urges voters to pick right candidates.

A Fourth Constituency candidate for the 2012

parliamentary elections called Sunday on Kuwaiti voters to elect the right

candidate for the National Assembly.

Promoting his platform in a rally targeting the fight against corruption,

Usama Al-Monawer, a lawyer, said: "the right selection of people's

representatives is very urgent due to the current situation in Kuwait."

He called for consolidating the freedoms of expression and opinions,

broadening the scope of political participation in various fields, providing

economic facilities, utilizing resources and supporting personnel.

He also stressed the necessity of building bridges of cooperation between

both legislative and executive authorities to achieve integration, and push

forward development based on the improvement of citizens' living conditions

and application of the principle of transparency by means of ensuring

unrestricted flow and exchange of information.

All manifestations of corruption and imbalance ought to be resolutely

combated, he said, emphasizing in this context that the bill on an

anti-corruption body should be adopted soon.

He considered that national interest should be the core basis for outlining

the foreign policy of the State through reliance upon Kuwait's strategic

dimension based on cooperation and solidarity with other Gulf, Arab and

friendly countries.

National economy needs to be revitalized, financial surplus and natural

resources be utilized and more sources of income be found, he stressed.

Al-Monawer, a human right activist and Lawyers without Borders member,

vowed to push forward a project for setting up a health city in order to

improve health services in Kuwait.

He also promised to press for a fast-track implementation of another public

university with a view to easing out pressure for Kuwait University.

Moreover, the Kuwaiti candidate, also a member of the International Union

of Lawyers, said he would do his best to develop civil society organizations

and NGOs.

He vowed to attach much attention to the needs of people with special needs

if he wins a seat in the coming parliament.
