He is fine lilo ... Prince Muqrin will succeed him in case of vacancy GOD forbid or will succeed him & the king in case of vacancy of both at the same time. In other words prince Muqrin is now the second in line to the throne following crown prince Salman.

i think it's sound like good idea to have prince Muqrin as back up although i think there other reason behind the appointment.

The reason behind the appointment in my opinion, is to ensure the stability of the regime in the Kingdom for the coming years. As you know King Abdullah is 90 years old & two of his crown princes passed away during his region before current crown prince Salman who is also nearly 80 years old. Even prince Muqrin is 70.

well those are good reason Rossina but as you said even prince Muqrin is 70 so if they want to solve the problem they should choose someone younger;King is 92 and Cp around 80 so i think this time they could choose someone over the 50 or even 60 Imo.

That`s true ,but unfortunately not possible so far because as you know according to the rules applied the Saudi throne should pass to the male sons of the founder. The late King Abdulaziz passed away in 1953 & prince Muqrin is his youngest surviving son. To do so they should transfer the right to the next generations.
