Kuwait ranked 116th globally and first among member countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council in the 2018 Democracy Index, advancing three positions compared with its previous ranking, reports Al-Rai daily.

According to the annual index issued by the Economist Intelligence Unit – a British business unit within the Economist Group providing forecasting and advisory services through research and analysis, Kuwait occupied the seventh position in the Arab world behind Jordan, Iraq and Palestine.

The Democracy Index ranks countries based on several factors such as electoral process, diversity, political culture, civil liberty, political participation and functioning of government.

Each rank is described as full democracy, flawed democracy, hybrid regime or authoritarian. In the 2018 index, Tunisia topped the list of Arab countries and ranked 63rd globally, followed by Morocco at 100th, Lebanon at 106th, Palestine at 109th, Iraq at 114th and Jordan at 115th.

Meanwhile, Algeria is at 126th, Egypt at 127th, Qatar at 133rd, Sultanate of Oman at 140th, the United Arab Emirates at 147th, Bahrain at 148th, Libya at 154th, Sudan at 155th, Yemen at 158th, Saudi Arabia at 159th and Syria at 166th.

The report stated that Scandinavian countries dominated the list of best democracies in the world with Norway on top, followed by Iceland in second, Sweden, New Zealand, Denmark, Canada, Ireland, Finland, Australia and Switzerland in the third to 10th positions respectively. Countries at the bottom of the list include Chad, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo, Syria and North Korea.

The Democracy Index is compiled with the intention to measure the state of democracy in 167 countries – 166 are sovereign states and 164 are United Nations member states
