According to the constitution, Kuwait is a hereditary emirate ruled by an emir from the offspring of Sheikh Mubarak Al-Sabah. The Crown Prince is appointed by an Emiri order based on the emir’s recommendation and the pledge of allegiance to the National Assembly by a majority of the members that make up the assembly. In the morning, the council pledged allegiance to one of them as the crown prince.
