KUWAIT: HH the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ah­mad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah is­sued a de­cree yes­ter­day to form the new Cab­i­net. The Amir con­grat­u­lated HH the Prime Min­is­ter Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Ha­mad Al-Sabah for ac­cept­ing and bear­ing the premiership’s re­spon­si­bil­ity, wish­ing him suc­cess in his tasks. Mean­while, HH the Amir will to­day open the first ses­sion of the Na­tional As­sem­bly’s 15th leg­isla­tive term at 10:00 am.

Sheikh Sabah later hosted the newly-formed Cab­i­net at the Amiri Air­port, where Sheikh Jaber pre­sented HH the Amir the new min­is­ters. The Amir praised the tremen­dous ef­forts ex­erted by the prime min­is­ter to form the new Cab­i­net, prais­ing the ef­forts ex­erted by the min­is­ters for bear­ing such a re­spon­si­bil­ity with all ded­i­ca­tion and loy­alty, hop­ing they will suc­cess­ful in per­form­ing their du­ties.

The Amir said in a ca­ble that “great re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and am­bi­tious eco­nomic as­pi­ra­tions sought by the home­land and cit­i­zens are await­ing you, which re­quires tremen­dous ef­forts to be har­nessed to speed up the pace of de­vel­op­ment in the coun­try”. Sheikh Sabah Al-Ah­mad added that this will only be achieved through work­ing as a team, pos­i­tive co­op­er­a­tion be­tween the leg­isla­tive and ex­ec­u­tive au­thor­i­ties as well as mu­tual keen­ness to tackle is­sues of cit­i­zens’ con­cerns. HH Sheikh Sabah also said that he is fully con­fi­dent in the abil­ity of the min­is­ters to bear the re­spon­si­bil­ity, urg­ing them to work on re­solv­ing prob­lems af­fect­ing the cit­i­zens and fa­cil­i­tat­ing tasks, ac­cord­ing to laws and reg­u­la­tions.

HH the Prime Min­is­ter ex­pressed deep grat­i­tude to HH the Amir for task­ing him, anew, with form­ing the Cab­i­net “while we are at the thresh­old of a new phase in the march of de­vel­op­ment and pros­per­ity, un­der your saga­cious lead­er­ship and guide­lines; this de­picts the pre­cious con­fi­dence you have ac­corded in me and the broth­ers, the min­is­ters, who have ac­cepted to co­op­er­ate for ful­fill­ing the du­ties in the most sat­is­fac­tory man­ner that may ap­pease His Almighty, Your High­ness and all cit­i­zens of Kuwait.”

Sheikh Jaber, who took the oath in front of HH the Amir and HH the Crown Prince, said he, along with the min­is­ters, is hon­ored to shoul­der the re­spon­si­bil­ity un­der the crit­i­cal cir­cum­stances in the his­tory of pre­cious Kuwait and in an at­mos­phere dis­tin­guished with pop­u­lar par­tic­i­pa­tion and re-em­brac­ing democ­racy as a method and mode of ac­tion, in the face of var­i­ous chal­lenges.”

Sheikh Jaber ex­pressed hope he will suc­ceed in re­al­iz­ing the Kuwaiti peo­ple’s as­pi­ra­tions, out­look and con­struc­tive in­struc­tions of HH the Amir for push­ing for­ward the process of con­struc­tion, de­vel­op­ment, com­bat­ing cor­rup­tion and re­forms for the sake of fur­ther progress and promi­nence.”
