Kuwaiti premier defeats bid to oust him

Kuwait`s premier on Thursday comfortably survived a parliament vote called by the opposition in a bid to oust him.



Kuwait City: Kuwait`s premier on Thursday
comfortably survived a parliament vote called by the
opposition in a bid to oust him over allegations he boosted
ties with Iran rather than Gulf Arab states, the parliament
speaker announced.

Only 18 MPs voted for the motion, seven votes short of
the required number to unseat Prime Minister Sheikh Nasser
Mohammad al-Ahmad Al-Sabah, speaker Jassem Al-Khorafi said
after a secret session.

Twenty-five MPs voted in support of the prime minister
and six lawmakers abstained.

The vote came after a grilling on May 15 when the
opposition accused the prime minister of undermining national
security by developing ties with Shiite Iran at the expense of
Sunni-ruled Gulf Arab states.
