Kuwait’s Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Sabah has ordered the dissolution of the country’s parliament to pave the way for snap elections for the second time this year.

The emir made the decision on Sunday for a second time in the recent past.

Earlier, after the emir ordered the dissolution of the parliament, the country’s Constitutional Court reinstated the legislative assembly.

The parliament, however, had been unable to meet because of a boycott by the opposition lawmakers who had gained the majority in parliamentary polls held in 2012.

The dissolution of the parliament has been one of the main requests of the opposition as the Persian Gulf state is struggling with a chronic political crisis.

The new legislative polls should be held within two months.

Kuwait’s 108-billion-dollar economic development plan is in a state of limbo due to the growing political tensions.
