The Kuwaiti government resigned en bloc on Monday as the opposition pushed for the ouster of Prime Minister Sheikh Nasser Mohammad al-Ahmad al-Sabah on corruption charges, the Al Arabiya TV channel reported.
“The Kuwaiti cabinet has resigned and the resignations have been accepted by the emir,” opposition MP Khaled al-Sultan Islamist told reporters outside parliament.
The opposition has accused Sheikh Nasser of transferring public funds into his overseas bank accounts, a charge he has denied.
He is also accused of complicity in a scandal involving around 15 pro-government MPs who allegedly accepted bribes worth $350 million.
