“The cabinet held an emergency meeting and decided to submit its resignation to the Amir,” Shaikh Mohammed Abdullah Al Sabah told a Press conference, adding the resignation letter was handed to the Amir, His Highness Shaikh Sabah Al Ahmed Al Sabah. The minister said the cabinet stepped down in order to give way to a new government to “take the necessary legal and constitutional procedures to implement the constitutional court ruling”. The constitutional court, whose rulings are final, on Wednesday scrapped the February legislative election and reinstated the previous pro-government parliament, plunging the emirate into yet another political crisis.
