“We considered other valuable resources at the candidate’s disposal –like 20% of the world’s known oil reserves,” the Forbes report said.

The personalities were measured and considered by the power they have according to four different categories; first, by the total number of people they have power on, second, by the financial resources they control, third, by the power they have in various areas (e.g. as politician, as billionaire), and lastly by how active they are in using their powers.

The final rankings were decided by ten senior Forbes editors.

Other prominent Arab figures considered in the list were Saudi Arabia’s Oil Minister Ali Al Naimi Sheikh on the 32nd spot followed by Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, UAE’s president, 33rd on the list.
