Kuwait emir reappoints Sheikh Sabah Al-Khalid as prime minister
Kuwait Emir Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah on Tuesday re-appointed Sheikh Sabah Al-Khalid Al-Sabah as prime minister.
The move comes two days after Sheikh Sabah submitted his government’s resignation in a procedural step following parliamentary polls, Arab News reported.
The country’s ruler accepted the premier’s resignation before reassigning him to form the upcoming government.
Sheikh Nawaf who took over the leadership of the Gulf state in September after the death of his brother, also asked Sheikh Sabah to nominate members of a new cabinet.
The new cabinet would have to be approved by the Emir, according to a decree carried on state media.
