Voters in Kuwait cast ballots for a new parliament Saturday, the third such election since the "Arab Spring" uprising in 2011.
Voters chose a new 50-seat parliament to replace the legislative body elected in December. A court ruled the earlier ballot was flawed.
Kuwait's main Islamist groups and some opposition factions boycotted Saturday's election to protest a new voting system decreed last year.
Kuwait's emir, Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Sabah, reduced the number of votes each citizen can cast in parliamentary elections from four to one.
Opposition groups said this favors supporters of the Western-backed emir and would prevent the opposition from gaining a parliamentary majority.
Supporters say the measure is designed to prevent political stalemates.
The political system in oil-rich Kuwait is the most open in the Gulf but the ruling al-Sabah family controls all key government posts.
