Saudi daily al-Riyadh quoted Kuwaiti parliament sources as saying that the decision by the emir stipulates appointing Sheik Salem al-Ali as prime minister to form a new government.
They said the current crown prince, Sheik Saad al-Abdullah "is currently in London on convalescence following a health failure and is expected to return home Friday."
"It has become almost definite that the emir will issue a decree in the next few days making the changes," the sources added.
