Cabinet of Kuwait resigns

(Kuwait) – Kuwait’s Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad Al-Sabah accepted his government’s resignation, a week after a fresh dispute broke out in the oil-rich Gulf state’s parliament.

Ministers including premier Sheikh Jaber Mubarak Al-Sabah, who has headed the government since 2011, will serve in a caretaker government until a new cabinet is appointed, the state news agency KUNA reported.

Last week, 10 opposition lawmakers filed a no-confidence motion against Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah Al-Sabah, a senior cabinet member and part of the ruling family, on allegations of financial and administrative irregularities.

Sheikh Mohammad, who is minister of state for cabinet affairs and acting information minister, denied the accusations.

Kuwait’s cabinet was formed less than a year ago, after snap polls in which the opposition won almost half of the 50-seat house.

Kuwait has faced political instability for over a decade, with parliament dissolved several times.
