Council of Ministers: Introduction

Of all the agencies and organized bodies of the government of Saudi Arabia, the Council of Ministers is the most potent. It derives the power directly from the King. It can examine almost any matters in the Kingdom.

Despite its relatively recent origin, the Saudi Council of Ministers emerged in 1953 (1372/73 AH) as the natural political outcome of King Abdul Aziz bin Abdul Rahman Al Saud's final consolidation of power and unity over the young Kingdom.
