Traffic jams emerge as election day approaches


KUWAIT: As the polling day for the upcoming parliamentary elections 2016 on November 26th approached, signs of traffic jams across the five constituencies start to emerge. The candidates are now entering the heated phase to lure a big number of voters, thus, causing unwanted traffic jams in areas where candidates’ headquarters are situated.

Though many candidates use valet parking services, large gatherings of crowds are still causing traffic congestion and overparking in some areas.
And with the transformation of the country into an electoral carnival, the Interior Ministry has set up a plan ahead of the elections aimed at increasing awareness on safety measures, as well as the necessity to ease traffic jams, whereas Kuwait Municipality has urged all candidates to ensure adequate parking space at their electoral headquarters. – Kuna
