According to the news of Kuwait’s official agency KUNA, the Emirate Decree on the establishment of a new government consisting of 14 ministers headed by Sheikh Ahmed Nawaf al-Ahmed al-Sabah has been published.
Emir Sheikh Nawaf al-Ahmad al-Jabir es-Sabah reappointed Sheikh Ahmed as prime minister on 5 March.
On April 5, the Speaker of the Parliament, Marzuq al-Ganim, called on the Emir of Kuwait and Crown Prince Sheikh Meshal al-Ahmed al-Jaber al-Sabah to intervene immediately with Prime Minister Sheikh Ahmed to resolve the crisis.
Ganim, who urged the Prime Minister to “take the oath and leave his post if he does not want to attend parliamentary sessions to approve the formation of his government”, stated that the ruling family is full of people competent to take on this task.
Cancellation of the last parliamentary election in Kuwait
On March 19, the Constitutional Court decided to cancel the election held on September 29, 2022, to invalidate the membership of those declared to have won the elections, and to reinstate the abolished parliament as it was in 2020.
The court stated that “the decision to dissolve the parliament in 2020 is invalid” as the reason for the annulment decision, and stated that the 2022 elections will also be invalid based on this situation.
In Kuwait, the parliament established in December 2020 was dissolved due to repeated disagreements between the Assembly and the government. The Crown Prince of Kuwait, Meshal al-Ahmed al-Jaber es-Sabah, announced on June 22, 2022 that early elections would be held in the country.
