KUWAIT - Around 1,500 Kuwaitis took part in a rally late on Monday to protest against possible changes in the electoral law and call for more democracy.

The crowd, which included opposition lawmakers and political activists, gathered outside parliament in a square which has hosted several anti-government demonstrations since late last year.

Kuwait's Interior Ministry said on Sunday it would act firmly against any "unlicensed" protests in the country and said calls for a sit-in at Erada Square undermined security and threatened public order.

While the US ally and OPEC member state has not had the kind of mass popular uprisings seen elsewhere in the Arab region, political tensions have escalated between the hand-picked government and elected parliament.
