A presidential decree reassigns “Hussein Arnous” to form the Syrian government.
Today, the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad issued Decree No. 206 for 2021 assigning the engineer “Hussein Arnous” to form the ministry in the Syrian Arab Republic.
Arnous had assumed the presidency of the Syrian government, succeeding “Imad Khamis” in June of 2020, in addition to his duties at the time as Minister of Water Resources, and then he was reassigned to head the government after the elections of the Syrian People’s Assembly.
President Al-Assad reassigned Arnous today to form the government after the last presidential elections, where the government becomes by virtue of the resigned after the election of the president or parliament, and is charged with running business until a new government is formed.
The head of the Syrian government “Arnous” was born in the village of “Al-Tah” in the city of “Maarat al-Numan” in the southern countryside of Idlib in 1953.
He is a graduate of the Faculty of Civil Engineering at the University of Aleppo in 1978, and took over the presidency of the branch of the Engineers Syndicate in Idlib between 1989 and 1994.
Since 1992, Arnous became Director of the General Company for Roads until 2002, then he became an assistant to the Minister of Transportation until 2004, and returned to become Director General of Road Transportation until 2009, when he was appointed Governor of Deir Al-Zour until 2011.
Arnous became the governor of Quneitra in 2011, and in 2013 he was chosen as Minister of Public Works in the government of Wael al-Halqi, and in the same year he became a member of the central leadership of the Arab Socialist Baath Party, and continued as Minister of Public Works and Housing after merging the 2 ministries until 2018.
Arnous was chosen as the Minister of Water Resources in 2018 in the government of Imad Khamis, who returned and headed it after releasing Khamis, as his government faced great economic and social difficulties especially after the start of the implementation of the US “Caesar” sanctions law on Syria.
Which was reflected directly on the lives of the Syrian citizens and the value of the Syrian pound, and the effects of this on the government support and the conditions of the citizens.
