Saudi Crown Prince ranks no 1 in Bloomberg list of world leaders likely to stick around

New Delhi: Bloomberg has picked 16 countries and analyzed how long their leaders might hold off the palace coups, election defeats or waning powers that end political careers. In the list, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is ranked 1st considering the fact that he isn’t king yet but he’s already effectively running Saudi Arabia at the age of 32 and he could conceivably govern for another half-century.

Bloomberg has analysed that due to the presence of weak opposition and absence of a miraculous leader Modi can rule up to 2024. If the opposition doesn’t become strong Modi is likely to remain PM till 2029.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman is followed by North Korean dictator Kim Jong UN. China’s Xi Jinping is on 3rd place. According to Bloomberg, Russia’s Vladimir Putin can have to give resignation in 2024.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan can further rule for next one decade. Recep Tayyip Erdogan could become even more influential if he’s reelected in November 2019, when more power will be concentrated in the Turkish presidency.

The list also includes Iran’s spiritual leader Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who according to the report can rule for the entire lifetime. Venezuela leader President Nicolas Maduro can be in power for another term.

Surprisingly Bloomberg in its report expressed fear that American President Donald Trump may not complete his term, as his first year in office has seen surging markets and the lowest unemployment in 17 years.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu can remain prime minister till 2019 if he survives corruption charges.
