A lot of Kuwaiti blogs are writing about wanting 5 electorate areas to avoid corruption, etc. etc. What was meant in corruption was the issue of selling votes.
Excuse my ignorance, but the problem is not in the number, the problem is with the voters selling their votes. Has anyone been reprimanded for selling his vote? Has a parliament member been removed from his seat for buying votes? Is it even illegal to do that?
When driving and we see a red traffic light, we all try to honor that red light and stop our cars, because if we did not, the camera would catch us, the policeman might take our driver's license away or we would face a fine or a nasty accident. That proves that we can follow a few simple rules if there was a punitive incentive to do so.
If you have a misbehaving child and he does something wrong, do you scold the child and send him to his room and make sure he does not repeat that mistake, or do you change district?
Maybe, the full story is not being told about the significance of 25, 10, or 5.
Maybe it has to do with demographies appealing to the different sides rather than merely buying votes.
Someone enlighten me please.
