JEDDAH: The President of the General Presidency for the Affairs of the Two Holy Mosques, Sheikh Abdulrahman Al-Sudais, has appointed 41 women in leadership positions.
The Presidency said in a statement that the appointments came from Al-Sudais’ “keenness to keep up with the Vision 2030 of our country and to work on implementing and benefiting from it, as Muslim women are an important pillar and send a fundamental message in achieving this vision, in light of what is required by public interest”.
Al-Sudais also stressed that the presidency works to ensure that Muslim women are a constructive and active factor in developing the services offered by the Two Holy Mosques by providing wider practical areas and opening wider horizons that would achieve progress, development and prosperity in accordance with Sharia (Islamic law) regulations.
