State television broadcast verses of the Koran after the announcement.

The emir was the 13th ruler of a 245-year-old dynasty that has ruled Kuwait since the Anaiza tribe, to which the al-Sabahs belonged, migrated from the Arabian hinterland.

Since the fall of Saddam Hussein in neighbouring Iraq in 2003 and United States calls for change in the Middle East, the ruling family had come under intense pressure from Islamists and pro-Western liberals to loosen its grip on the government and share power.

Kuwait, a founder OPEC member, enjoys one of the world's highest standards of living, despite its reliance on oil exports, unpredictable oil income and huge losses from the 1990-1991 Iraq occupation.
