Kuwait holds parliamentary by-elections March 16
February 5, 2019, 8:25 am

Kuwait Government will organize by­elections for 2nd and 3rd constituencies on March 16 after the Court of Cassation slammed prison sentences on two MPs.

The government, in a meeting chaired by His Highness the Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Mubarak Al­Hamad Al­Sabah, received a letter from National Assembly Speaker Marzouq AlGhanim officially declaring seats of MPs Dr. Waleed Al­Tabtabae and Dr. Jamaan Al­Herbesh vacant, an official statement said.

The two seats became vacant after the Court of Cassation sentenced the two MPs, during a session on July 8, 2018, for three and a half years behind bars.

The cabinet, therefore, assigned Deputy Premier and Interior Minister Sheikh Khaled Jarrah AlSabah to prepare for by­elections in the 2nd and 3rd constituencies on March 16.
