Kuwai: Court annuls 2022 election results, restores previous parliament

Europe News Desk!! Kuwait’s Constitutional Court on Sunday canceled the 2022 National Assembly and reinstated the 2020 Parliament. The media gave this information. The decision went into effect immediately and members of the previous parliament, including speaker Marzouk al-Ghanem, took office, Xinhua news agency quoted the Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) as saying. The decision came after the Constitutional Court ruled that the election process in all five electoral districts in September 2021 was null and void. According to KUNA, in December last year the Constitutional Court suspended its investigation of appeals filed by several electoral districts against the parliamentary election results. The then Kuwaiti cabinet resigned in January following a standoff between the government and the opposition-led parliament over financial relief policies. Earlier this month, the court had announced that it would deliver judgment on the election appeals on March 19.
