January 18 Kuwait’s Emir Nawaf approved the collective resignation of the cabinet on the 18th and asked the cabinet to continue to deal with emergency affairs until a new cabinet is formed.
Kuwaiti Prime Minister Sabah Khalid submitted a collective resignation of the cabinet to Nawaf on the 13th.
According to KCNA, the reason for the resignation of the cabinet was that three parliamentarians questioned the Prime Minister, accusing him of violating constitutional provisions when forming the cabinet, failing to take into account the composition and development trend of the new National Assembly, and not submitting its work programme to Parliament after the successful cabinet formation.
For a long time, the relationship between the Kuwaiti Cabinet and Parliament has been tense.
Kuwaiti parliamentarians have initiated many questions against cabinet ministers, and the motion for questioning automatically expires after the resignation of the cabinet.
On December 6, 2020, the results of the 16th National Assembly election in Kuwait were announced.
According to the constitution, Prime Minister Sabah Khalid submitted his cabinet collective resignation to Nawaf on the same day and was approved.
On the 8th, Sabah was reappointed as Prime Minister and responsible for forming a new cabinet.
On the 14th, the current cabinet was established.
