I don't understand internal Kuwaiti politics, but I'm researching it right now. There's a Reuters article that explains the background pretty well. The Kuwaiti opposition recently took a majority of votes in a Kuwaiti election, where one family holds power and political parties are banned. The government has now changed the voting rules, which would prevent the opposition from winning again in the future.
The people of Kuwait aren't having any of it.
