I might add that the new Crown Prince Sultan is the full brother of the late King Fahd.

Thus far each King has been a son of Abdul Aziz, the 'founder' of the dynasty. As per a 1992 decree, the King can choose and withdraw a crown prince. The decree also states that second generation princes -- the grandsons of Abdul Aziz -- are legitimate candidates.

I have a general question: why pass on to half-brothers/brothers? why not sons? is it wise to have an aged crown prince?
Throne tends to be passed on by age from amongst the legitimate candidates.
