The move comes ahead of a no-confidence vote against Health Minister Shaikh Ahmad Abdullah Al Sabah, a member of the ruling family. 

Kuwait's Deputy Prime Minister Ismail Al Shatti said that cabinet members resigned because of "the difficulties in working with the parliament".

"I have been informed that the government has presented its resignation," said parliament member De'ij Al Shammari.

Kuwait's parliament has a history of challenging the cabinet, whose prime minister must be from the ruling family.

"We hope the next government will be a strong one, including strong ministers with a clear vision that parliament can work with," said parliament member Ahmad Al Shuhmi.
