Constitutional Boundaries of the Relationship between the Executive and the Legislative Authorities in the Kuwaiti Constitution
Separation between the authorities does not mean the total independence of each authority from the other; rather, it means that power will not be concentrated in the hands of one only. This is because complete separation between authorities cannot be envisaged in practical terms. Also, there are in reality channels of communication between them to allow their cooperation, whether this is between the two legislative and executive powers or their relations with the judicial powers. However, the question to be asked here is: How are those powers distributed in the Kuwaiti Constitution and what is the mechanism of the relationship between those powers? In order to answer this question, the following matters will be examined. This study deals with the relationship between the executive and the legislative authorities and examines the means used by the executive authority towards the national assembly, and then studies the means used by the national assembly towards the executive authority.
