Kuwait Emir Dies: Sheikh Nawaf to Be Succeeded by His Half Brother


Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmed Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, whose rule as Kuwait’s emir was defined by efforts to resolve long-standing political disputes that blocked attempts to improve the economy, has died. He was 86.

Sheikh Nawaf passed away after being admitted to hospital on Nov. 29 for an emergency health problem, state-run KUNA reported on Saturday. In line with the constitution, Sheikh Nawaf will be succeeded by his half brother, 83-year-old Crown Prince Sheikh Mishaal Al-Ahmed Al-Sabah, who’s already been handling most daily affairs of state.
