Sunday, 24 January 2021, Kuwait City, State of Kuwait: His Highness The Emir of the State of Kuwait, Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmed Al-Jabr Al-Mubarak Al Sabah tasked HH Sheikh Sabah Al-Khalid Al-Hamad Al Sabah with nominating a new 38th cabinet for approval.
The barely one month-old government had been acting in a caretaker role since it resigned over the confrontation with parliament. The situation has complicated efforts to tackle a severe liquidity crunch in the wealthy OPEC member state caused by low oil prices and the coronavirus pandemic.
Head of government, Sheikh Sabah Al Khalid (b. 3 March 1953) is Kuwait’s eighth prime minister. From 2011 to 2019 he served as Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister.
On Tuesday, 2 March 2021 His Highness The Emir issued a decree appointed the cabinet as submitted by Prime Minister Sheikh Sabah Al-Khalid Al-Hamad Al Sabah. Therein HE Sheikh Dr. Ahmad Nasser Al-Muhammad Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah was confirmed as chief of diplomacy and Minister of State for Cabinet Affairs.
Kuwait has the most vibrant political system amongst the Gulf Arab states, with a parliament able to pass, and block, legislation and question ministers. However, some senior governmental posts are occupied by members of Kuwait’s ruling family, and the emir has final say in state matters.
