Kuwait's constitutional court ruled on Wednesday that a parliamentary election held in February was void and decided to restore the previous assembly, state news agency KUNA reported.

It said the court ruled that “the decree calling for the National Assembly 2012 election is void, and ordered) the return of the dissolved council.”Kuwait's ruler suspended parliament for one month earlier this week as a row escalated between the cabinet and lawmakers, threatening to draw in senior ministers and stalling economic planning in the major oil producer.
