(Nov 02, 2007) On October 8, 2007, King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia issued by-laws governing the work of the political body Haiat al-Baiat (Allegiance Commission), set up last year to help streamline the process of succession to the throne. The Commission will comprise the sons of King Abdulaziz Al-Saud, the founder of Saudi Arabia. If a son declines to participate or is deceased or incapacitated, his seat on the Commission goes to one of his sons, who should be of good moral character and at least 22 years old. (By-laws of the Allegiance Commission, ASHARQ ALAWSAT, Oct. 9, 2007.)
