Kuwait hs announced a new government, a month after the government resigned due to a row between ruling family members and parliament, state news agency KUNA reported Tuesday.
Days after the resignation, Kuwait's ruler named Sheikh Sabah Al Khalid Al Sabah as prime minister, elevating him from his role as foreign minister.
Now Sheikh Khalid has named his new cabinet, including his successor at foreign minister, Ahmad Nasser Al Mohammad Al Sabah.
The cabinet also has new interior, defence, and finance ministers. Oil Minister Khaled Al Fadhel kept his position.
The previous government resigned a month after lawmakers sought a no-confidence vote against the interior minister and as a dispute between senior officials, including the interior and defence ministers, over alleged mishandling of public funds went public.
Caretaker premier Sheikh Jaber Al Mubarak Al Sabah had initially been nominated to form the new cabinet but he turned down the offer, citing a media campaign against him.
In November, hundreds of Kuwaitis protested the government's slow response to corruption outside the parliament building in Kuwait City.
The sit-in was organised with government permission by former MP Saleh Al Moulla organised the demonstration online using the slogan “That’s enough!”
