Report: Kuwait gov't calls for dissolution of parliament
October 3, 2012 12:23
KUWAIT - Kuwait's cabinet has asked the country's ruler to consider dissolving parliament, state news agency KUNA said on Wednesday, a widely-expected move after months of political deadlock.
The major oil producer has been unable to hold a parliamentary session for several months after its top court effectively dissolved the opposition-dominated parliament, which was elected in February, basing its decision on a technicality.
The previous, more government-tilted assembly that the court reinstated has been unable to convene due to a boycott by lawmakers and another dissolution is expected soon.
