The President of the General Presidency for the Affairs of the Two Holy Mosques, Sheikh Dr. Abdulrahman al-Sudais, has appointed 41 women in leadership positions.

The Presidency said in a statement on Monday that the appointments came from al-Sudais’ “keenness to keep up with the 2030 vision of our country and to work on its implementation and benefit from it and because Muslim women are an important message and a fundamental pillar in achieving this vision and in view of what is required by the public interest”.

Al-Sudais also stressed that the presidency works to ensure that Muslim women are a constructive and active factor in the development of the services offered in the Two Holy Mosques by providing wider practical areas and opening wider horizons that would achieve progress, development and prosperity in accordance with the Sharia regulations.
