Kuwaiti voters elected pro-government candidates to replace five opposition lawmakers who resigned two months ago in by-elections that saw one of the lowest turnouts in the emirate's history.The results will boost the grip of the government on the 50-seat parliament where it already enjoyed a comfortable majority. There are now no female MPs as all five women who stood in the by-elections lost.Between mid-2006 and last year, parliament was dissolved six times and there were more than a dozen governments.
