In the past 50 years parliament has       been dissolved on nine occasions, while some articles of the constitution       itself were frozen twice to suspend parliament for a total of 11 years in       the 1970s and 1980s.
Last night’s celebration came as the       government and opposition are locked in one of the worst standoffs in the       country’s history, with the opposition accusing the government of staging       a coup against the constitution.
More than 150 people and 24 policemen       suffered minor injuries during three massive demonstrations held by the       opposition to protest against the amendment of the electoral law ordered       by the emir last month.
The opposition claims the amendment       is in breach of the constitution and allows the government to influence       the outcome of parliamentary polls due on December 1. It insists that the       emir must repeal the amendment.
The opposition is marking the       constitution anniversary with a huge rally in Kuwait City on       Sunday.
The visual presentation marked 50 years to the day since the late emir Sheikh Abdullah al-Salem al-Sabah announced that Kuwait had become the first Arab state in the Gulf to issue a constitution
