Saudi Arabia  today  announced an appointment of a woman  into top position of its administration Tamadur bint Youssef al-Ramah becoming the Deputy Labour Minister, a rare high-level job for a woman in the deeply conservative kingdom.

According to report gathered by Naija News the appointment also saw   the   reshuffling of  some of its top military officers replaced for a much  younger generation elevated to top positions . The military officers removed includes the military chief of staff, air defense, and land forces heads and senior defense and interior ministry officials.

These personnel changes were decreed by King Salman and published in state media and the decrees also included adoption of a new strategy to restructure the defense ministry for improved organization and governance. No reason for the changes was given.

This overhaul, which is the most recent in a series of relaxed laws and restrictions, has become something of a trademark of crown prince Mohammed’s approach to ruling a youthful Saudi Arabia.

it will be recalled that Naija News  reported   a recent move to enact reforms granting females more access to a wide range of previously forbidden careers like permission  to work in  army and also the right to drive cars.
