Parliament only reinstated in March following Constitutional Court decision after previous dissolution
Kuwait on Monday dissolved parliament by royal decree, according to state news agency KUNA.
Following a Cabinet meeting, the ministers approved the decree dissolving the parliament.
In March, Kuwait’s Constitutional Court annulled last year’s parliamentary elections and reinstated the previous parliament.
The opposition won a majority in the September 2022 polls after winning 28 seats in the 50-member assembly.
But the court ruled that the polls were null and void and that the previous assembly must be reinstated.
The 2020 parliament was dissolved by a decree from Crown Prince Sheikh Meshal al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah in 2022 amid a dispute between the government and the previous assembly.
