Saudi Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman’s new role as Prime Minister is in line with the King’s previous delegation of duties to him, including representing the Kingdom in foreign visits and chairing summits hosted by the Kingdom, a Saudi official said on Tuesday, Reuters reports.

King Salman bin Abdulaziz named his son and heir, Prince Mohammed, as the Kingdom’s Prime Minister and his second son, Prince Khalid, as Defence Minister, a Royal Decree said on Tuesday.

“HRH the Crown Prince, based on the King’s orders, already supervises the main executive bodies of the State on a daily basis, and his new role as Prime Minister is within that context,” the official said.

‏Historically, such delegation of duties had taken place in the Kingdom several times, the official added.
