Videos that appear to have been shot from cell phones and posted on the net show a throng of protesters at the Parliament chanting, The people must remove the prime minister. There is an attempt to bring down the prime minister, said the witness, who added that the protesters had left the Parliament building and were heading toward Irada Square in downtown Kuwait City.
The country has no elections. The emir, whose position is hereditary, appoints the prime minister and the deputy prime ministers. The prime minister’s cabinet resigned last March.
