Kuwaiti is reportedly considering introducing electronic voting for parliamentary elections. The parliamentary public utilities committee on Monday discussed the technical issues related to electronic voting.

However, committee head MP Adel Al Khorafi said even if electronic voting was implemented, manual voting cards would still be used alongside computers. Kuwait is the only Gulf state with parliamentary elections, which have been held since 1962. However, most ministry positions are appointed by the Amir.

The opposition has boycotted the past two elections in protest over a move to change to a one-vote system that it argues deliberately disadvantages the opposition.
