Kuwait’s government resigned again today.

The government of Prime Minister Sabah al-Khalid al-Sabah submitted its resignation to the emir, Sheikh Nawaf al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah, the official Kuwait News Agency reported.

This is the second time a Kuwaiti government has resigned this year. Sabah’s previous cabinet resigned in January after a constitutional disagreement with parliament. His next government took office in March and sought to address the COVID-19 pandemic and financial issues until resigning today.

Kuwait is in a period of political transition. Its longtime emir, Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Sabah, died in September 2020 and was succeeded by his brother, the current emir.
