Kuwait appoints Bader al Mulla as new oil minister amid political shake-up
Kuwait appointed on Sunday Bader al Mulla as its new oil minister, the Ministry of Information in the Gulf country said on Sunday.
It added an Emiri decree to form the government also included appointing Abdel Wahab al Rasheed as finance minister and Salem Al-sabah as foreign minister.
Kuwait has postponed convening the first parliament session after elections to October 18, the state news agency reported last week.
The Gulf state's crown prince re-appointed Sheikh Ahmad Nawaf al-Sabah, the ruling emir's son, as prime minister and later approved a new Cabinet following legislative polls.
