Kuwait Emir Dissolves Parliament & Suspends Constitutional Articles | Political Turmoil Begins

  • 2 months ago
Kuwait's Emir Sheikh Mishal al-Ahmad al-Sabah dissolved parliament, assuming its responsibilities and suspending specific constitutional articles for up to four years. In a candid address, he highlighted rampant corruption within state institutions and emphasised the urgency of addressing pervasive challenges. This decision follows the first elections under his leadership, amid persistent conflicts between the National Assembly and the cabinet, hindering reforms to reduce oil dependency. Resistance from politicians during a scheduled parliamentary meeting underscores ongoing power struggle. The move, termed historic by analysts, reflects the enduring dominance of the Al-Sabah family despite Kuwait's parliamentary system.
