The resignation of Kuwait’s government was accepted on Thursday in an Emiri decree, state news agency KUNA reported.

On Monday, Kuwaiti Prime Minister Sheikh Ahmad Nawaf al-Sabah submitted the resignation of his cabinet to the country’s crown prince, in the latest standoff between government and the elected parliament.

Tensions recently resurfaced between parliament and the government, sworn in last October, as lawmakers pressed for a debt relief bill, under which the state would buy Kuwaiti citizen’s personal loans, and sought to question two ministers.
