The Islamic Salafi Alliance (Arabic: التحالف الإسلامي السلفي) is a Sunni political party in Kuwait headed by Khaled AlـSultan Bin Essa. Of the fifty elected members of Kuwait National Assembly, only three seats belonged to the Islamic Salafi Alliance: Mohammed Al-Kandari, Ali Al-Omair, and Khaled AlـSultan Bin Essa[1] before the elections of May 17, 2008. That day, they won a few seats.[2]
