KUWAIT CITY: Opposition lawmakers maintained a majority in Kuwait’s parliament, results showed Friday.

Opposition candidates won 29 seats in the 50-member assembly, according to results carried by KUNA news agency, matching the outcome of last year’s election.

The make-up of the new parliament is very similar to the outgoing one, with all but 11 lawmakers retaining their seats.

Turnout was around 62 percent after polling stations closed at midnight, the information ministry said.
