Kuwaiti Emir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah on Monday reappointed Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Hamad Al-Sabah as prime minister, the Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) reported.
The emir tasked Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Hamad Al-Sabah to nominate members of the new cabinet, KUNA said.
Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Hamad Al-Sabah submitted the resignation of his government to the emir on Nov 14. The emir accepted the resignation and ordered the cabinet to serve as a caretaker one until a new government would be formed.
The resignation was submitted by the prime minister to "rearrange the government tasks," Tareq Al-Mizrem, official spokesman of the government, said in a statement.
Kuwait experiences frequent cabinet reshuffles, with the latest cabinet formed less than two years ago.
