Kuwait protesters demand PM’s removal – Middle East – Al Jazeera English.

Thousands of youth activists have rallied in Kuwait for the removal of the prime minister, pushing the oil-rich Gulf state closer to political turmoil.

“The people want to topple the prime minister,” chanted more than 3,000 protesters late on Friday night for the third straight week, braving temperatures close to 40 degrees Celsius in the desert state.

Speakers called on the emir to remove Sheikh Nasser Mohammad al-Ahmad al-Sabah, the prime minister, and put an end to bitter feuds among members of the al-Sabah ruling family.

“A dangerous (power) struggle is taking place among members of the ruling family. Their disputes and struggles will certainly negatively impact us,” liberal MP Abdulrahman al-Anjari told the crowd.

“I am afraid that if no real constitutional reforms are implemented, these disputes will spread like cancer. We have to contemplate adopting constitutional monarchy,” al-Anjari said.
