Kuwait appoints new Prime Minister

Kuwait named the emir’s son as prime minister on Sunday, replacing caretaker premier Sheikh Sabah Al Khalid who faced a combative parliament amid a feud between the government and elected assembly that has hindered fiscal reform.

Crown Prince Sheikh Meshal Al Ahmad Al Sabah, who took over most of the ruling emir’s duties late last year, named Sheikh Ahmad Nawaf Al Sabah to the post in an emiri decree.
