Due to disagreements between the Cabinet of Ministers and Parliament, the authorities could not pass the laws necessary to overcome the crisis.
Emir of Kuwait Nawaf al-Ahmed al-Jaber al-Sabah officially accepted the resignation government, according to the news agency KUNA.
According to media reports, on the eve of the Prime Minister Ahmad Nawaf al-Sabah submitted a statement on the dissolution of the Cabinet to the Crown Prince Meshalu al-Ahmad al-Sabahwho assumed a significant part of the duties of the ruling head of state. Nevertheless, for some time the members of the current government will still have to fulfill their duties: by decree of the emir, officials will remain in place until their successors are elected.
Regular reshuffles in the ruling structures are not new for Kuwait. Due to the difficulties in the relationship between the Cabinet and the National Assembly (Parliament), the legislature and the government repeatedly resigned. All this hinders government reforms and foreign investment, which the country needs to get out of the crisis.
According to the results of the voting, which took place on September 29, new 50 deputies were elected, who should take seats in parliament for the next four years. This time, after the votes of citizens were counted, opposition candidates showed great success.
It is worth noting that the election of new members of the council was carried out ahead of schedule – their predecessors were dissolved by order of the crown prince. The authorities hope that the renewed composition of legislators and ministers will finally be able to find a common language with each other and change the situation in the country for the better.
