Al-Mizrem added another Amiri decree was issued appointing Minister of State and Foreign Minister Sheikh Dr. Ahmad Nasser Mohammad Al-Sabah to be acting Minister of Defense, and appointing Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Oil and Minister of Water and Electricity and Renewable Energy Mohammad Al-Faris as Acting Minister of Interior.

The two senior Cabinet ministers in Kuwait submitted their resignations to the prime minister earlier Wednesday, citing political turbulence and the impossibility of reform in the country. In a joint statement to reporters, the country’s defense and interior ministers decried their inability to achieve “the reforms and development that the Kuwaiti people deserve” and a national political atmosphere “full of quarreling.” Kuwait’s rowdy parliament, a rarity in the Arabian Gulf sheikhdoms, has held up key social and economic reforms while hauling in ministers for questioning about matters related to corruption., (KUNA)
