Kuwait’s Prime Minister Sheikh Sabah al-Khalid al-Sabah submitted on Wednesday the resignation of the government to Emir Sheikh Nawaf al-Ahmed al-Sabah, reported the state news agency (KUNA).

The government had resigned on Tuesday days after lawmakers submitted a motion asking to question the premier over issues including the makeup of the cabinet.

The resignation of the cabinet, formed on Dec. 14, had been expected after the move in parliament earlier this month.

The prime minister had been due to be questioned at a parliamentary session on Jan. 19.
