According to the Saudi Press Agency, King Salman ordered the nomination of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman as Saudi Arabia’s prime minister on Tuesday.

However, a Royal Decree stipulates that the King will preside over the weekly Cabinet meeting, to which he is invited.

The nomination of the Crown Prince was made possible by waiving the requirements of Article 56 of the Basic Law of Governance and the pertinent clauses in the Law of the Council of Ministers.
