Prominent Ruler In Western Asia Appoints 37-Year Old Son As Prime Minister Of Country

Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud and his son Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman attend an oath-taking ceremony appointing the prince as the country’s new prime minister, at al-Salam Royal Palace in the Red Sea coastal city of Jeddah, September 27, 2022.

Saudi Arabia’s power crown prince, whose prior formal role was defense minister, strengthened his position when his father, King Salman, issued a decree late on September 27 naming him as prime minister, a title traditionally held by the king.

The 37-year-old de facto ruler has overseen the most fundamental transformation in the modern history of the Gulf nation and sidelined all rivals after he became crown prince in June 2017. (AFP)
