Dysfunction in Kuwaiti Government

Technically, I don't suppose this strictly fits the definition of news.

It's certainly not something new or novel. 

It's actually more like an ongoing soap opera.

The "Two Powers" are ratcheting up their struggle.

The most recent flap over a KD200,000 check issued by the Prime Minister.

Stories in English here with the Prime Minister's reaction in Arabic huna.  The latter headline reads "I Will Sue You".

Parliament is also getting ready for one of its periodic interpellation sessions.

With sights set on five ministers this time.  The PM, Defense Minister, Finance Minister, Works Minister, and the Interior Minister.

If the Executive Branch wishes to avoid the grilling.  the two time honored methods are resignation by individual ministers or dissolution of the Majlis AlUmma.
