Kuwait's Constitutional Court on Sunday ruled that last September's parliamentary election was void and that the previous assembly must be reinstated.


Justice Mohammad bin Naji said the court had annulled the early elections held in September.


"The constitutional authority of the dissolved parliament shall be restored as of the date of this ruling," he told the court session attended by reporters.
