The reason for his resignation is attributed to the delay by Shura in reviewing its panel’s study, according to the Shura council’s tweet.
The council had postponed discussions on the committee’s recommendations until the start of the new session in September. Last week, the committee recommended merging the ministries and called for an end to honorary supervisory positions in government institutions. Recently, Al Lawati said merger of ministries would save the state millions.
