Kuwait named the emir’s son as the country’s new prime minister yesterday to replace caretaker premier Sheikh Sabah Al-Khalid who faced a combative parliament as head of cabinet in a feud hindering fiscal reform, Reuters reports.

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.

Sheikh Ahmad was previously interior minister and must now form a government.
