Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Gets Promoted to Position of Prime Minister.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has reportedly been promoted to be the country’s Prime Minister by his father King Salman.

 


The Crown Prince, Popularly known as MBS, has become the kingdom’s prime minister, a royal decree said on Tuesday September 27.


Saudi King Salman according to reports had ordered for a cabinet reshuffle, thus giving his son the post which was traditionally held by him ‘the king’.

 

The crown prince was previously serving as deputy prime minister under his father King Salman as well as defence minister.  He is now being replaced as defence minister by his younger brother, Khalid bin Salman, who was previously deputy defence minister.

Meanwhile Saudi Arabia’s energy minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman retains his portfolio under the new cabinet headed by the kingdom’s crown prince and de facto ruler Prince Mohammed bin Salman. 

 



The foreign minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud, the finance minister Mohammed al-Jadaanand and the investment minister Khalid al-Falih also kept their positions in the new cabinet. 

The reshuffle follows an agreement made on Sunday September 25, the United Arab Emirates to supply natural gas and diesel to Germany as part of an ‘energy security’ deal to replace Russian supplies.


 

Emirati industry minister Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber called it a ‘landmark new agreement’ that ‘reinforces the rapidly growing energy partnership between the UAE and Germany’, at a signing attended by German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, the UAE’s state news agency WAM reported.
