According to the news of Kuwait’s official agency KUNA, the Emir of Kuwait once again tasked Ahmed Nawaf al-Ahmed al-Sabah, who resigned about 1.5 months ago, to form the government.
Kuwaiti media announced on January 23 that the government of Sabah prime minister had resigned.
It was noted that the government maintained its stance in the political crisis with the parliament and refused to make any commitments to the bills, which it described as “populist”.
The crisis between the legislative and executive bodies in the country began on January 10. Members of the government withdrew from the Assembly session, rejecting the bill on “reducing the credit debt of the citizens”.
Arguing that the proposal, which concerns about 500,000 Kuwaitis, according to unofficial sources, is contrary to the principle of justice and equality, the government side demanded that “reports on bills that bring financial burden be forwarded to the commissions for discussion and that constitutional and consensus-based solutions be reached”.
