Kuwaiti Minister of Works resigns minutes after announcing the formation of the new government

Ammar Al-Ajmi, Minister of Public Works and Electricity in the new Kuwaiti government formed by Sheikh Ahmed Nawaf on Wednesday, announced his resignation from the government minutes after its formation.

Al-Ajmi said on his Twitter account: "Serving the people of Kuwait is an honor linked to a homogeneous and honest team that bears responsibility and respects the constitution, and since the government team contains some elements that have lost popular confidence and are certain that they do not respect the constitution. I apologize for working with them as one team, knowing That I had previously asked for names and were withheld from me.”

For his part, Kuwaiti political analyst Dr. Muhammad Musaed Al-Dosari told the German News Agency that the new government cannot, with this apology, take the constitutional oath, given that it did not complete the constitutional conditions for forming a government, as the Kuwaiti constitution obligates in Article 56 that (the appointment of ministers shall be from members Parliament and others), and accordingly, an essential condition for forming a government has been lost, making it impossible to form a government.

Kuwaiti Prime Minister Sheikh Ahmad Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah announced on Wednesday the new names of his second cabinet, which included two deputy prime ministers, nine new ministers and two women.

And 6 ministers from the previous government kept their portfolios in the new government with a slight change.

On Wednesday, the Kuwaiti Amiri Diwan announced the reappointment of Sheikh Ahmed Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah as prime minister.
