The Amir of Qatar, His Highness Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, 61, has informed members of the ruling family of his decision to hand over power to Crown Prince Sheikh Tamim after a meeting in Doha. The royal court said in a statement that the Amir would make a speech later and Tuesday would be a national holiday.
Diplomats said earlier this month that the Amir was considering an orderly transfer of power that would probably begin with the departure of the powerful Prime Minister and Foreign Minister, Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim Al Thani, 53. Arab and Western diplomats said they understood the motive was the Amir’s desire to have a smooth transition to a younger generation.
