Kuwaiti Amir accepted the resignation of the government yesterday, two days after parliament filed a no-confidence motion against Interior Minister Shaikh Khalid Al Jarrah Al Sabah, who is a senior member of the ruling Al Sabah family.
Legislators had questioned Shaikh Khalid over alleged abuse of power, charges he rejected. The country’s public works minister resigned last Friday after being grilled by parliament about flood damage in the country following heavy rainfall.
The cabinet will remain in office until a new government is appointed, the government communication office said. Assembly speaker Marzouq Al Ghanem said the Amir does not intend to dissolve parliament.
