The parliament was dissolved on the grounds of constitutional provision 107.

On April 4, Kuwait’s Emir Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, dissolved the parliament and called for a new general election, continuing a political crisis between parliament and the executive that has stalled reforms.

The country suffers from constant stand-offs between elected lawmakers and cabinets installed by the ruling Al Sabah family.
