Kuwaiti Crown Prince Mishal signed the Emir Order on the 23rd local time, appointing Sabah Khalid as Prime Minister and responsible for the formation of a new cabinet.
This is the fourth time Sabah has been appointed as Prime Minister of Kuwait. On the 8th of this month, then Prime Minister Sabah submitted a cabinet collective resignation to the Kuwaiti Emir (head of state) Nawaf. Later on the 8th, Ghanim, the Speaker of the National Assembly, announced the cancellation of the regular parliament meeting originally scheduled for the 9th. According to local media reports, parliamentarians were originally scheduled to raise questions against multiple cabinet members at this meeting. On November 14, Nawaf approved the collective resignation of the cabinet.
The relationship between the Kuwaiti cabinet and parliament has been strained for a long time. Parliamentarians have repeatedly initiated inquiries against the cabinet ministers. After the cabinet resigns, the motions related to the inquiries will automatically become invalid.
The Prime Minister of Kuwait is appointed by the Amir. On the 15th of this month, Nawaf signed the Emir Order, announcing that Crown Prince Mishal could assist him in exercising some of his constitutional powers.
