The Constitution framed the method of governance in a more modern way that embodies the deep-rooted relationship between the people of Kuwait and its leadership. Its content and fundamental components affirm adherence to the principles of justice, freedom, equality, and equal opportunity among its citizens.
Kuwait Constitution went through a labor phase before it was approved, as a Constituent Assembly was elected to draft a constitution for the state in January 1962. The late Abdul Latif Thunayan Al-Ghanim was elected the Speaker of the Constituent Assembly, while Dr. Ahmad Al-Khatib was elected Vice-President. The first task undertook by the Constituent Assembly was to form a committee consisting of five members to prepare the draft constitution who included:
