According to the Kuwaiti state news agency, Prime Minister Sabah Al-Khalid Al-Sabah handed in his resignation to Crown Prince Mishal Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah on Tuesday.
However, the agency did not provide any additional information on the reason for the resignation, which comes a week after the parliament interrogated the Kuwaiti premier.
Kuwaiti lawmakers have submitted a no-confidence vote against the prime minister, which is scheduled to take place on Wednesday.
The Kuwaiti parliament accuses the prime minister of “committing unconstitutional practices, disrupting the interests of citizens and failing to cooperate with the legislative institution.”
During a span of about a year and a half, Sheikh Sabah Al-Khaled established the government three times. On two separate occasions in 2021, he submitted his government’s resignation.
