On Monday, Kuwait appointed Jassim Al-Astad - who holds the position of Minister of Electricity, Water and Renewable Energy - as acting Minister of Public Works, after accepting Amani Boqmaz’s resignation from her position, according to what was reported by the Kuwait News Agency (KUNA).

Reuters reported on Monday that Boqmaz is facing interrogations from two parliamentarians regarding several issues and accusations, the most important of which are her failure to complete, maintain and repair roads and disrupting projects.

The political situation in Kuwait is surrounded by constant tensions, especially between the government and the National Assembly, which often led to the resignation of the government, the dissolution of Parliament, or both.

The Ministry of Public Works is concerned with securing the requirements of ministries and public institutions for buildings and construction, constructing and maintaining roads and squares, implementing sanitation projects, establishing infrastructure for new residential areas and implementing other projects, according to KUNA.
