KUWAIT CITY – Sheikh Nawaf Al Ahmed Al Sabah was appointed as Emir on Tuesday (September 29), following the death of Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmed Al Sabah.
Sheikh Sabah died on Tuesday at the age of 91, after 14 years of serving as Kuwaiti Emir.
Sheikh Nawaf, Sheikh Sabah’s 83-year-old brother and Deputy Emir, had assumed some Emiri duties when Sheikh Sabah was admitted to a US hospital for treatment and a surgery in July.
“Succession should be relatively smooth with the Crown Prince, who has stood in for the Emir before, assuming office,” said Raza Agha, head of emerging markets credit strategy at Legal & General Investment Management.
Sheikh Nawaf was sworn in as Crown Prince in 2006, making him the oldest Crown Prince in the world. He previously served as Minister of Defence and Minister of Interior. ICA/Expat Media
