KUWAIT - Kuwait will hold a snap parliamentary election on July 25, state news agency KUNA said on Thursday, after the Gulf state's top court dissolved the chamber on a technicality earlier this week.
"At an extraordinary meeting held today, the cabinet approved a draft decree inviting voters to elect members of the National Assembly on July 25," KUNA quoted Minister for Cabinet Affairs Sheikh Mohammad al-Mubarak al-Sabah as saying.
