The Kuwaiti Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Mubarak Al-Hamad Al-Sabah on Monday submitted the resignation of his cabinet after the parliament's no-confidence motion, the Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) reported.

The Kuwaiti Emir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah accepted the resignation, whereby the cabinet will proceed amid urgent circumstances as a caretaker cabinet until the formation of a new one, KUNA said.

The government resignation came at the backdrop of a no-confidence motion filed by 10 parliament members of the National Assembly against minister of State for Cabinet Affairs and Acting Information minister, Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah Al-Mubarak Al-Sabah, for his alleged failure to implement legislation and abide by the budget.

The MPs also indicated last week that they were preparing to grill other cabinet members including oil minister Essam Al-Marzouq, Minister of Social Affairs and Labor Hind Al-Sabeeh, and Defense Minister Sheikh Mohammed Khaled Al-Sabah.

Kuwait experiences frequent cabinet reshuffles, with the latest cabinet formed less than one year ago.
