Crown prince becomes Kuwait’s new ruling emir
    2020-10-01  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

KUWAIT’S Crown Prince Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah became the oil-rich nation’s new ruling emir Tuesday night, reaching the highest post in the country after decades in its security services.

Sheikh Nawaf, 83, had served as the crown prince since 2006.

While his taking of the throne came as prescribed by Kuwait’s constitution, there likely will be negotiations behind the scenes in the weeks ahead over who will become the country’s next crown prince.

State television carried an address by Anas Khalid al-Saleh, Kuwait’s interior minister and deputy prime minister, announcing Sheikh Nawaf had taken the position just hours after old Emir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah’s death.

Sheikh Nawaf, like his half-brother Sheikh Sabah, was born before Kuwait discovered the oil that would make this small nation among the richest in the world. Born June 25, 1937, Sheikh Nawaf became a governor of Kuwait’s Hawalli region and later the country’s interior minister.

As interior minister, Sheikh Nawaf negotiated in 1980 with two Jordanians who hijacked a Boeing 727 heading from Beirut to Kuwait City. The hijackers ultimately gave up the plane without harming any passengers on board. Sheikh Nawaf negotiated in other hijackings as well.

Sheikh Nawaf served as Kuwait’s defense minister beginning in 1988. (SD-Agencies)
