KUWAIT - Kuwait's government will resign on Monday in line with constitutional rules, its foreign minister said, a step designed to make way for a new cabinet in the Gulf Arab state after a snap parliamentary election two days ago.

The election was the second this year in the oil-producing nation, where a series of assemblies have collapsed due to a long-running power struggle between the parliament and the cabinet, in which the emir's ruling family holds the top posts.

More than half the members of parliament elected on Saturday are newcomers to the 50-seat National Assembly. The chamber is expected to be more cooperative with the government than its predecessor after an opposition boycott of the poll and protests that divided the OPEC member and US ally.

Under the constitution, a new government must be formed before the first session of the new parliament, which must take place within two weeks of the ballot.
