CHANGE IN LEAD­ER­SHIP ROLES

Qatar Today - - AFFAIRS > LOCAL -

Qatar's Emir, HH Sheikh Tamim bin Ha­mad Al Thani, has named two in­di­vid­u­als to some of the na­tion's most pow­er­ful po­lit­i­cal po­si­tions, ac­cord­ing to the state news agency.

The moves were an­nounced on Novem­ber 11. For the first time, HH Sheikh Tamim has named a Deputy Emir – his half-brother Sheikh Ab­dul­lah bin Ha­mad Al Thani. Prior to be­ing named Deputy Emir, Sheikh Ab­dul­lah was chief of the Emiri Di­wan, Qatar's seat of gov­ern­ment. Re­plac­ing him is Sheikh Khalid bin Khal­ifa bin Ab­dul Aziz Al Thani, who Sheikh Tamim pre­vi­ously named as di­rec­tor of the of­fice of the Emir in June 2013.
