Madam Minister

Saudi minister of social affairs Yousuf al-Uthaymeen does not mind women taking senior positions at his ministry. Actually, he is hoping that a woman will succeed him at his position as minister. The woman he nominated for the position is Dr. Mody al-Zahrani, supervisor of the social protection unit at the ministry. Al-Uthaymeen statement came after attending a GCC meeting for social affairs ministers. “This is the future minister,” he said as he pointed to Dr. al-Zahrani who was sitting next to him, according al-Sharq newspaper.
