Kuwait’s National Assembly (parliament) on Tuesday elected lawmaker Ahmad al-Saadoun as a new speaker.
According to the Kuwaiti Constitution, the assembly elects a speaker and deputy speaker until the end of its term.
Al-Saadoun, 88, was speaker of the assembly in 1985, 1992 and 1996. He was elected unchallenged during Tuesday’s vote.
Earlier Tuesday, Crown Prince Sheikh Meshal Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah attended the parliament’s opening session after last month’s parliamentary election in which opposition lawmakers secured nearly 60% of seats in the 50-seat National Assembly.Güncelleme Tarihi: 19 Ekim 2022, 17:21
