On Monday, the Emir of Kuwait announced the appointment of Ahmad Abdullah al-Ahmad al-Sabah as the new Prime Minister, succeeding Sheikh Mohammed Sabah al-Salem al-Sabah, who resigned in April. This latest development followed the election of a new parliament, which marks the fourth since December 2020. 

  • Sheikh Ahmad has an impressive background in finance and government. He obtained a bachelor's degree in Business Administration, majoring in Finance (Banking and Investment), from the University of Illinois in 1976.
  • Over the years, he held various positions at Kuwait's Finance Center and the Central Bank of Kuwait. In addition, he served as the chairman of the board for Burgan Bank before taking up different ministerial positions, including Minister of Finance, Minister of Communications, Minister of Planning, Minister of State for Administrative Affairs, Minister of Health, and Minister of Oil.
  • It's worth noting that Kuwait's political system disallows political parties, but it has a relatively open political environment compared to other Gulf states. The Emir holds ultimate authority in state matters.
