Kuwait snap polls on July 25

Kuwait, June 20, 2013

Kuwait will hold a snap parliamentary election on July 25, state news agency KUNA said on Thursday, after the country's top court dissolved the chamber on a technicality earlier this week.

"At an extraordinary meeting held today, the cabinet approved a draft decree inviting voters to elect members of the National Assembly on July 25," Kuna quoted Minister for Cabinet Affairs Sheikh Mohammad al-Mubarak al-Sabah as saying.

The election will be the sixth since 2006 in the major oil producer where political upheaval has stalled infrastructure development and held up economic reforms.-Reuters
