KUWAIT CITY (AA) – Kuwait’s emir Sheikh Nawaf Al Ahmad Al Sabah on Tuesday reappointed Prime Minister Sheikh Sabah Al Khalid Al Sabah to form a new government.
The move came two days after Sheikh Sabah submitted his government’s resignation following the election of the country’s National Assembly (parliament) in accordance with the Kuwaiti Constitution.
The country’s ruler accepted the premier’s resignation before reassigning him to form the upcoming government.
The election has resulted in an all-male parliament with 31 new members where none of the women candidates managed to make it to the 50-member unicameral assembly.
