Kuwait names Ahmad Abdullah Al-Sabah as prime minister


Kuwait's Emir on Monday appointed Ahmad Abdullah al-Ahmad al-Sabah as prime minister, state news agency KUNA reported.

Under the decree, the new Kuwaiti Prime Minister has been tasked with forming a new cabinet.

Former Prime Minister Sheikh Mohammed Sabah al-Salem al-Sabah resigned in April only a few months after he was designated to form a government.

His resignation was a procedural move after a new parliament was elected that month, the fourth since December 2020.
