Kuwait’s ruler reappoints PM following resignations

Kuwait’s ruler reappoints PM following resignations :

Kuwait’s ruler, Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad Al-Sabah, reappointed his prime minister on Wednesday and asked him to form a cabinet, according to Kuwait News Agency.

The official state news agency made the announcement regarding the appointment of premier Sheikh Jaber Mubarak Al-Sabah, after the government stepped down earlier this week in an expected cabinet reshuffle.

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.
