Kuwaiti Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Mubarak al-Hamad al-Sabah tendered on Monday his resignation to Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmed al-Jaber al-Sabah, reported the Kuwaiti News Agency (KUNA).
The Emir accepted the resignation and ordered that the ministers will now take on a caretaker role until a new cabinet is formed.
The resignation came on the eve of a National Assembly session that was set to discuss a no-confidence vote in Information Minister Sheikh Mohammed Abdullah Mubarak al-Sabah.
The minister was debriefed last Tuesday.
KUNA said that the National Assembly will hold a regular meeting on Tuesday and Wednesday to address a number of articles, most notably the no-confidence vote.
