The Kuwaiti Cabinet on Tuesday approved a draft decree inviting voters to elect National Assembly (parliament) members on April 4, 2024, and referred it to Emir Sheikh Meshal al-Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah, said the government spokesman.

The spokesman made the statement following a cabinet meeting.

Last Wednesday, the government issued a decree law suspending the election commission law until the beginning of October.

On Feb. 15, Kuwait’s Emir dissolved the parliament after it declined to remove remarks made by a lawmaker that were deemed disrespectful to the ruling authority.

The Emiri decree cited the Assembly’s breach of constitutional principles, particularly regarding the disrespect of esteemed positions and the deliberate use of disrespectful and offensive language by the parliament’s members.
