Kuwait's minority Shia MPs have lost more than half of their seats in the second parliamentary election in less than a year, official results show.
Shia candidates won eight seats in the 50-member parliament, compared with a record 17 in the ballot in December.
Liberal and tribal groups have emerged the main winners. Voter turnout was an estimated 52.5%, which was higher than expected despite an opposition boycott.
The previous parliament was dissolved in December over a procedural flaw.
