Dubai: Kuwait’s Cabinet on Monday approved an Emiri decree on dissolving the National Assembly (parliament), Kuwait News Agency (Kuna) has announced.

The Cabinet approved the Emiri decree on dissolving the parliament during its meeting.

The parliament was dissolved on the grounds of constitutional provision 107.

On April 4, Kuwait’s Emir dissolved the parliament and called for a new general election, continuing a political crisis between parliament and the executive that has stalled reforms.

The country suffers from constant stand-offs between elected lawmakers and cabinets installed by the ruling Al Sabah family.
