Kuwait forms new government

Kuwaiti Prime Minister Sheikh Ahmed Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah formed a new government on Sunday.

Sheikh Ahmed was reappointed prime minister by the crown prince in March, two months after his government resigned following a standoff with parliament.

According to state news agency KUNA, the new government includes 14 Cabinet ministers.

The government formation came a few days after Parliament Speaker Marzouq Al-Ghanim appealed to the country’s rulers to intervene to resolve the crisis between parliament and the premier after the government failed to appear before the assembly.

Disagreements between parliament and the government have often led to the resignation of the Cabinet in the Gulf country.
