  1. Only one woman wins in elections

    OMAN: Election results released today showed that only one woman had been elected to the kingdom’s Shura council.

    Nu’amah Bint Jamayel al-Busaidi was one of 77 women who stood for the 84-seat body in the first national vote since pro-democracy protests earlier this year.

    The country’s all-powerful Sultan Qaboos bin Said has promised greater powers for the council, which has so far only had the right to advise the monarch, but he has not revealed any specifics.
