Sheikh Sabah Al Khalid has been re-appointed as the Prime Minister of Kuwait 15 days after the resignation of all members of his cabinet.
The Kuwait News Agency (QNA), the country’s state-run news agency, was quoted as saying by Reuters on Tuesday (November 23rd).
Kuwaiti Prime Minister Sabah al-Khalid resigned along with all members of his cabinet on November 8 over a dispute with opposition MPs in parliament. According to a QNA report, the country’s Crown Prince Sheikh Meshaal Al Ahmed on Tuesday re-appointed Al Khalid as prime minister and ordered the immediate formation of a new cabinet.
Last week, the Emir of Kuwait, Sheikh Nawaf Al Ahmed Al Sabah, handed over some of his constitutional powers to his recognized legacy and the country’s Crown Prince Sheikh Meshaal Al Ahmed Al Sabah. These powers include matters such as the appointment of the Prime Minister and the conduct of the swearing-in ceremony of the cabinet.
By virtue of that power, the Crown Prince re-appointed Al Khalid as Prime Minister. However, Amir Sheikh Nawaf had accepted the resignation letter of the previous government last week. He also announced a general amnesty for anti-government lawmakers.
In 2019, Sheikh Sabah Al Khalid became the Prime Minister of Kuwait for the first time. Recently, anti-government MPs in Parliament became angry with the Prime Minister and members of the Cabinet for not showing the expected success in curbing the inefficiency and corruption in controlling the Corona epidemic.
From March this year, the government and opposition MPs began to disagree on various issues. As a result of these differences, steps such as parliamentary activity and fiscal reform have stalled over the past few months.
