The Right of the Dissolution of Parliament in the Jordanian and Kuwaiti Parliamentary System ( A Comparative Study)

Khalid Khalaf Al-Droa


The right to dissolve parliament in the parliamentary system is one of the most significant means of influence that the executive branch exercises in its relationship with the legislative branch. It is the constitutional weapon that the executive branch use in facing the second authority which can raise the political responsibility of the ministry and brings it down. The executive branch can terminate the life of the parliament before the end of its term as it has the right to dissolve it by resorting to the will of the sovereign people in the dispute between the legislative and executive branches over matters of state policy through early parliamentary elections.The Jordanian Constitution of 1952 and its amendments and the Kuwaiti Constitution of 1962 stipulated a number of conditions that prevent the abuse of the right of dissolution by the executive authority.Despite of the importance of these conditions, some of them still insufficient and the others are incompatible with the purpose of dissolving the parliament.

Keywords: dissolution of parliament, legislative branch, executive branch, ministerial responsibility, parliamentary system.
