KUWAIT: With the launch of the electoral campaign for 2016 parliament hopefuls, many open spaces throughout Kuwait’s governorates have been transformed into temporary construction sites as workers race with time to set up campaign tents and campaign headquarters as soon as possible and welcome potential voters.
Workers filled these spaces, laying down floors and hammering out installations according to specific designs that would meet candidates’ visions, while spots alongside the main roads were reserved for billboards to be used as part of the media campaign of many candidates.
Kuwait’s National Assembly elections will be held November 26. They will be the seventh parliamentary polls since 2006. The 50 member parliament are elected for a term of four years.
