Sheikh Jaber al-Mubarak al-Sabah
Kuwait ruler reappoints PM, calls for new cabinet
Kuwait, December 5, 2012
Kuwait's ruler reappointed Sheikh Jaber al-Mubarak al-Sabah as prime minister on Wednesday and asked him to form a new government after a parliamentary election on Dec. 1, the state news agency Kuna reported.
The Gulf Arab country's ruler, Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Sabah, issued the order by decree, Kuna said, in the wake of the vote boycotted by the opposition.
Under Kuwaiti constitutional rules, Sheikh Jaber, who has been prime minister since November last year, needs to form a cabinet before the first session of the new parliament on December 16. The old cabinet resigned on Monday. – Reuters
