Kuwait cabinet resigns after no confidence motion

KUWAIT, October 30, 2017

The Kuwaiti cabinet on Monday tendered its resignation following the developments after the grilling of the cabinet affairs minister last week, said a report.

Emir of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah accepted the resignation of the Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Al Hamad Al Sabah and all ministers, state news agency Kuna reported, asking them to continue important duties until a new cabinet is sworn in.

Last week, 10 opposition lawmakers filed a no-confidence motion against Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah Al Sabah, a senior cabinet member and part of the ruling family, on allegations of financial and administrative irregularities, reported AFP.

Sheikh Mohammad, who is minister of state for cabinet affairs and acting information minister, denied the accusations, stated the report.

Kuwait’s cabinet was formed less than a year ago, after snap polls in which the opposition won almost half of the 50-seat house, it added.
