The Kuwaiti cabinet has resigned following disputes with an opposition-led parliament.
The Prime Minister, Sheikh Ahmed Nawaf al-Ahmed Al-Sabah, on Monday submitted the cabinet’s resignation to the Crown Prince, Sheikh Meshal al-Ahmad al-Jaber Al-Sabah.
The cabinet reportedly said in a terse statement, without elaborating, that the resignation was sparked by a deadlock between the executive and the legislative authority.
Parliament had been scheduled to convene on Tuesday.
The outgoing cabinet, which was sworn in October 2022, was the sixth in three years in Kuwait.
In September 2022, Kuwait held its sixth election in a decade, forming an opposition-led parliament.
