The Interior Minister Sheikh Thamer Al-Ali, with the aim of injecting new blood in the security system said the tenure of those officers who have reached the age of sixty will not be renewed including those whose work contract was renewed earlier, stressing that this measure comes within the framework of the ministry’s efforts to make room for the young elements with new ideas.

The source told Al-Anba the decision will affect directors-general and their assistants or those without any position in addition to assistant undersecretaries, except in a very few exceptional cases, which generally means once a senior officer reaches sixty the legal period of service ends.

The source said the decision will affect dozens of senior officials who are currently in service, pointing out that the financial privileges given to these personnel are fair, and those who are over sixty or the renewal period has expired must apply for retirement and not request for extension.
