Saudi Local Elections Postponed

عربي

The Saudi Cabinet postponed the kingdom’s local elections, scheduled for 2009, until 2011 on May 19 in order to reform municipal council laws. The first local elections were held in Saudi Arabia in 2005 to elect half of the municipal council’s 178 members. The other half were appointed by the king. Women could not vote or run in the 2005 elections and it is unclear whether they will participate in 2011. Click here  for more in Arabic
