Kuwait's Amir on Thursday accepted the resignation of the government, two days after parliament filed a no-confidence motion against Interior Minister Sheikh Khalid al-Jarrah al-Sabah, who is a senior member of the ruling al-Sabah family.
Lawmakers had questioned Sheikh Khalid over alleged abuse of power, charges he rejected, Reuters reports from Kuwait City.
The country's public works minister had resigned last Friday after being grilled by parliament about flood damage in the desert country following heavy rainfall.
The cabinet will remain in office until a new government is appointed, the government communication office said in a Twitter post.
Kuwait's parliament has the power to pass legislation and question ministers.
Frictions between the cabinet and parliament have led to frequent reshuffles or the dissolution of parliament.
The assembly's speaker, Marzouq al-Ghanem, told state news agency KUNA on Thursday that the Amir does not intend to dissolve parliament.
