On Tuesday, the resignation of Kuwait’s government was accepted by the country’s emir, Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah.
The state news agency reported that the emir issued a decree asking the government to stay in a caretaker capacity.
Prime Minister Sheikh Sabah Al-Khaled Hamad Al-Sabah submitted his government’s resignation last month: the fourth in the past two and a half years.
No reason was provided for the government’s resignation. The decision came days after a parliamentary session to question the premier over accusations of unconstitutional acts, hindering people’s interests and non-cooperation with the legislative authority.
11 Kuwaiti governments resigned and 16 ministers were relieved of their duties following 128 parliamentary questioning sessions, since 1985.
