Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim announced a cabinet reshuffle on Tuesday.
He has appointed Ali Bin Ahmad Al Kawari as finance minister, according to a statement from the royal court. Mr Al Kawari was appointed as acting finance minister in May of 2021 after his predecessor was accused of misuse public funds. He was previously CEO of the Qatar National Bank Group as well as chairman of the board of the Qatar stock exchange and other companies.
He made 13 new appointments, two of whom were women.
Qatar recently held legislative elections to fill two-thirds, or 30 members, of the 45 seat Shura council. No women were elected to any of the positions. According to officials, there was a turnout of 63.5 per cent.
