KUWAIT CITY, Nov. 14 (Xinhua) -- Kuwaiti Emir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah accepted on Thursday the resignation of the government submitted by the prime minister, the Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) said.
The emir ordered the cabinet to serve as caretaker until a new government would be formed, the KUNA said.
Kuwait's Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Hamad Al-Sabah has submitted the resignation of his government to the emir earlier on Thursday.
The resignation was submitted by the prime minister to "rearrange the government tasks," Tareq Al-Mizrem, official spokesman of the government, said in a statement without giving further details.
Kuwait experiences frequent cabinet reshuffles, with the latest cabinet formed less than two years ago.
