MBS Next King of Saudi Arabia

Question

Mohammed bin Salman is the crown prince of Saudia Arabia and heir apparent to replace Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud as king of Saudia Arabia. However his suspected involvement in the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi has raised international outcry, but so far Saudia Arabia has remained adamant about his leadership.

Will Mohammed bin Salman become the next king of Saudi Arabia?

The question will resolve as Yes if Mohammed bin Salman becomes king of Saudi Arabia, according to credible media reports.

It will resolve as No if:

1) Someone else replaces Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud as king of Saudia Arabia.

2) The monarchy no longer functionally rules Saudia Arabia (for example because of a revolution)

3) Mohammed bin Salman is unable to assume office (for example because of his death)

4) Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud remains king of Saudi Arabia till 31/12/2035 (at which time he would be 100 years old).
