what most ppl dont know is that king AbdulAziz wrote that throne is for the most sutable of his sons and then grandsons and so on/ and that any son/grandson from a mother not from a tribale saudi family will not be put in this possition meaning that Turki alfaisal (his mother is turkish) can not be named crown prince/
Talal , mishaal, muteb , mugren the sons of king abdul Aziz cannot be as well.
and Blaueregel we are happy with this choice we want a leader that is fair and kind and also just / i dont think his good looks and humor will be the qualities we look for in a future king! and yes we are a conservative country and we like it.

I thought there are a lot of people who want to have more justice,equal opportunities and fairness-these are values that are also compatible with Islam because modern laws and new approaches to the problems of our time don´t mean that you need to abandon your moral and ethical principles.

I thought that was written by the current King, King Abdullah, he set up the council in 2006 or 2008.

Saudi royal family split by Crown Prince appointment

Saudi royal family split by Crown Prince appointment - Telegraph
The tightly managed Saudi royal family has been split by the decision to appoint a hardline conservative as Crown Prince, with a senior prince resigning from its innermost council.
Prince Talal bin Abdul Aziz, the most liberal of the country's senior royals and father of one of the world's richest men, Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, posted a statement on his website saying he was quitting the Allegiance Council.
[...]
It was no secret that Prince Talal was unhappy about the likely promotion of his half-brother, but it is likely that his resignation is as much about the failure to hold a wide-ranging debate in the Allegiance Council as the decision itself.

Saudi royal calls for regime change in Riyadh | World news | The Guardian
Quote:
A senior Saudi prince has launched an unprecedented call for change in the country’s leadership, as it faces its biggest challenge in years in the form of war, plummeting oil prices and criticism of its management of Mecca, scene of last week’s hajj tragedy.

The prince, one of the grandsons of the state’s founder, Abdulaziz Ibn Saud, has told the Guardian that there is disquiet among the royal family – and among the wider public – at the leadership of King Salman, who acceded the throne in January.
The collapse of Saudi Arabia is inevitable | Middle East Eye

Quote:
On Tuesday 22 September, Middle East Eye broke the story of a senior member of the Saudi royal family calling for a “change” in leadership to fend off the kingdom’s collapse.

In a letter circulated among Saudi princes, its author, a grandson of the late King Abdulaziz Ibn Saud, blamed incumbent King Salman for creating unprecedented problems that endangered the monarchy’s continued survival.

“We will not be able to stop the draining of money, the political adolescence, and the military risks unless we change the methods of decision making, even if that implied changing the king himself,” warned the letter.

The House of Saud is preparing for a "battle royale" | Asia Times
Quote:
For monarchies, wars of succession appear to be a regular phenomenon. While the House of Saud has largely succeeded in maintaining a smooth system of succession, its internal strength seems to be eroding as the new generation of princes starts eyeing kingship.

While Prince Muhammad bin Salman, the current Saudi defense minister, deputy crown prince and son of King Salman, is believed to be the most powerful person in Saudi Arabia, he is not the lawful heir.

In 2015, according to the tradition, Muqrin bin Abdulaziz, the youngest of the sons of the Kingdom’s founder, Abdulaziz bin Abdul Rahman Al Saud (Ibn Saud), became the Crown Prince.

Does the new development in question mean that the succession line will move to King Salman's bloodline?

It is impossible to determine what has been happening behind the closed doors of Saudi palaces. King Salman has appointed his sons to be a state minister of energy and an ambassador to USA. So Prince Mohammed bin Salman's appointment is not surprising. It is rumoured that King Salman may abdicate in favour of the current Crown Prince, who is a bold reformer.

you are right you'll never know for sure what happening behind the closed doors,there is also a possibility that the new generation of princes had enough and want to take the lead from the old guards.

Saudi Arabia's Next King Moves to Secure Power By Confining Cousin to Palace
Quote:
The Saudi prince removed as second-in-line to the throne last week, Mohammed bin Nayef, has been confined to his palace in the Red Sea city of Jeddah, according to officials.
The move is reportedly a bid to ensure no challenge to his 31-year-old successor, the modernizing face of Saudi Arabia and son of ageing King Salman, Mohammed bin Salman, four former and current Saudi and U.S. officials told the New York Times. ...
The title in this article may indicate that the US expects Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to succeed his father.

Arab Media Reveal Failed Assassination Attempt against Saudi Crown Prince | FARSNEWS

Quote:
TEHRAN (FNA)- Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has escaped an assassination attempt at one of the royal family palaces in Jeddah, Arab media reported.
Arabic language Mer'at al-Jazeera quoted sources close to the royal family as saying on Sunday that bin Salman was targeted by an assassination attempt in Jeddah by one of the Saudi princes.
Also, a western diplomat in Riyadh said that the Saudi crown prince wasn’t harmed in the failed attempt and the prince who made the move was arrested.
