Exceptional among Gulf states, Kuwait’s National Assembly has a powerful role in decision making. Yet some Kuwaitis find it difficult to monitor the activities of all 50 members of parliament. This is what compelled Abdullah Al-Khonaini and Hamad Al-Judai to establish Raqib50. The first online parliamentary watch tool in Kuwait, Raqib50 keeps track of not only legislation submitted by MPs, but also their attendance history, voting track record, and motions to grill ministers. Raqib50 was created with the purpose of raising the bar on transparency and accountability between citizens and their elected MPs. This belief that Kuwaiti citizens have the “right to know” is what inspired Raqib50. Speaking with AGSIW, Raqib’s co-founder Abdullah discussed the initiative’s founding, response it garnered during the November 2016 elections, and future plans.
