Kuwait: Kuwaiti leadership on the brink

After the sad passing of the Kuwait Emir earlier this week, everything was supposed to be figured out within the week or so to clear the view for us as Kuwaitis to know what is the future of our leadership.
The new Emir, Sheikh Sa'ad, is physically in very bad shape. There was an argument on wether it is possible for Sheikh Sa'ad to be Emir without saying the oath.
Everybody in Kuwait was hoping for the ruling family to agree on something very quickly so everything can go back to normal. Unfortunately, it has gone the opposite way so far, Kuwaitism said.
