Islam News – Kuwait’s ruler told the new parliament, in which opposition candidates made gains, that comprehensive reform was needed to help the Gulf Arab state exit its worst economic crisis in decades and that there was no time for “fabricating conflicts”, according to Reuters agency.

Emir Sheikh Nawaf al-Ahmad al-Sabah took the reins in September following the death of his brother at a time the wealthy OPEC member state is facing a severe liquidity crunch due to low oil prices and the coronavirus crisis.

“Our country’s path faces serious problems and big challenges which call for putting in place a comprehensive reform programme,” Sheikh Nawaf said in Tuesday’s address at the new assembly’s first session.
