Saudi Crown Prince listed in TIME's Person of the Year for 2017
The TIME Magazine has listed Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salaman to be the “Person of the Year,” for 2017 due to his new assertive leadership in Saudi Arabia.

The Time has also listed France’s Emmanuel Macron, China’s Xi Jinping, and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un.

Since 1927, TIME Magazine has chosen a “Person of the Year,” defined as a person (or people) who has had the most influence over the news in the last 12 months.

In 2016, the Person of the Year was Donald J. Trump, who upended the political world after unexpectedly defeating his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton to become the President of the US. 

The year before, German Chancellor Angela Merkel was named Person of the Year after she led Europe through a series of political and economic changes.
