The emir of Kuwait, Sheik Jabbar al Ahmed al Sabah, accepted the resignation of his government and then asked the crown prince and Cabinet ministers to stay on temporarily until a new government is formed. The prince, Sheik Saad al Abdullah al Sabah, acts as the prime minister and is expected to be asked to form the new Cabinet. The resignations were required under the nation’s constitution after Wednesday’s National Assembly elections, in which more than half of the 40 incumbents in the legislature were defeated.
