Kuwait's cabinet on Monday approved a draft decree for parliamentary elections to be held on Dec 5, the government communications centre said in a Twitter post.
Emir Sheikh Nawaf al-Ahmad al-Sabah, who assumed power last month following the death of the Gulf country's late ruler, must still approve the decree.
Key will be co-operation between cabinet and the outspoken assembly, the Gulf region's oldest legislature that wields power to block bills and question ministers.
