So the dust has settled and now that we can look more closely at the changes made, we can see that there is a new position that wasn’t there before. It’s not the position given to the first Saudi woman minister. But I can’t help but think that it might be because of it. I am speculating here and to me it could be one of two things. The first cynical point of view is that the job given to Mrs. Nora Al Faiz is only for show and Dr. Faisal bin Moamer is the one that is really going to call all the shots in girls’ education. The other way you can look at it is that it was necessary to create a general vice minister position because the new minister is one of the more prominent members of the royal of family and was previously a direct assistant and consultant to the head of the secret service agency and as such requires someone close by to take over when need be.
