Kuwait government resigns to shield three ministers

Kuwait (Reuters) The Government of Kuwait has submitted his resignation on Thursday, as expected, to prevent three ministers to be questioned by Parliament, as reported by a congressional source. "The ministers have submitted their resignation to the prime minister, who will forward the emir," said the source told Reuters.

Several deputies had asked question three ministers, all members of the Al Sabah, who rules the country. This is the final challenge of the Kuwaiti Parliament, an assembly with enough power when compared with other countries in the region ruled by autocratic leaders. The Kuwaiti MPs have forced the resignation or remodeling of several governments to apply interrogation.

Several sources had said on Wednesday it believed that the emir of Kuwait, Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al Sabah, entrusted to the Prime Minister Sheikh Nasser al Mohammad al-Sabah, who formed a new government. While asking the ministers is a common practice in most of the world's parliaments in Kuwait is seen as a direct challenge against being interrogated and an indirect challenge against the president, who has the last word in politics.
