Kuwait City, Nov 1 (IANS) Kuwaiti Emir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah on Wednesday renamed Sheikh Jaber Mubarak Al-Hamad Al-Sabah as the Prime Minister, the media reported.
The emir tasked Jaber to nominate members of the new Cabinet, the Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) reported.
Jaber submitted the resignation of his Cabinet earlier this week. The emir accepted the resignation, whereby the Cabinet will proceed amid urgent circumstances as a caretaker Cabinet until the formation of a new one.
The government resignation came at the backdrop of a no-confidence motion filed by 10 Parliament members of the National Assembly against Minister of State for Cabinet Affairs and Acting Information Minister, Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah Al-Mubarak Al-Sabah, for his alleged failure to implement legislation and abide by the budget, Xinhua news agency reported.
Kuwait experiences frequent Cabinet reshuffles with the latest Cabinet formed less than a year ago.
Jaber had been reassigned as Prime Minister several times since he assumed the office from 2011.
