Diplomat Times (Doha) – Before HH the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani, HE Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani took the oath as Prime Minister at the Amiri Diwan on Tuesday morning.

Qatar’s ruling emir, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, appoints the holders of top offices, usually from members of the ruling family. As in other Gulf Arab countries, politics is largely confined to the ruling family and developments are rarely aired in public.
Sheikh Mohammed has served as foreign minister since 2016 and was the public face of Qatar as it navigated a 3 1/2-year economic boycott by Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt that only came to an end in January 2021.
Today, I was honored by the trust bestowed upon me by His Highness Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, the Emir of the country, “may God protect him”, by assigning me as Prime Minister. I ask God Almighty for success, and I look forward to working with my fellow ministers in serving our country and contributing to its advancement under the wise leadership of His Highness.
HE Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani tweeted, He also holds Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
تشرفت اليوم بالثقة التي أولاني إياها حضرة صاحب السمو الشيخ تميم بن حمد آل ثاني أمير البلاد المفدى "حفظه الله" بتكليفي رئيساً لمجلس الوزراء.
اسأل المولى عز وجل التوفيق وأتطلع للعمل مع زملائي الوزراء في خدمة وطننا والإسهام في رفعته في ظل القيادة الرشيدة لحضرة صاحب السمو.
