Presidential Decree on designating Dr. Wael al-Halqi as new Syrian Prime Minister

(Dp-news) DAMASCUS- Syrian TV says Thursday that President al-Assad appoints Dr. Wael el-Halqi as new Prime Minister.

State-run news agency SANA said that President Bashar al-Assad issued on Thursday Decree No. 298 on designating Dr. Wael Nader al-Halqi as Prime Minister.

On Monday, Syrian TV reported “Prime Minister Riad Hijab was sacked & his Deputy Omar Ghlawenji was tasked to hold the Syrian Premier temporarily.”

But foreign press reported then that "Riyad Hijab has defected from the regime," said Rami Abdel Rahman, director of the Syrian Observatory of Human Rights.



President Bashar Al Assad appointed Riyad Hijab, a former agriculture minister, as prime minister only in June following a parliamentary election which authorities said was a step towards political reform but which opponents dismissed as a sham.



New Syrian Premier al-Halqi served as the Minister of Health in the current and former government.

Dr. al-Halqi was born in Daraa, 1964. He holds a medical degree from Damascus University in 1987. He served as Director of health care directorate in Jassem city between 1997 to 2000.



Dr. al-Halqi later became Secretary of Daraa branch for al-Baath Arab Socialist Party from 2000 to 2004.In 2010, he served as Chief of Syria's doctors. He is married with four children.
