Khalifa ibn Salman Al Khalifah (Arabic: خليفة بن سلمان آل خليفة‎) (born 22 November 1936) is the Prime Minister of Bahrain. He is the uncle of the reigning King, Hamad ibn Isa al-Khalifah, and has been Prime Minister since 1970, originally being appointed by his brother, the then emir, Isa ibn Salman al-Khalifa. He is the longest-serving unelected prime minister in the world, having retained office for 39 years. He still retains his post, although under the 2002 Constitution he has lost some of his power on paper with the King having the authority to appoint and (along with parliament) dismiss ministers. He is known to be the richest member of the ruling family and one of the biggest merchants in Bahrain.
