Record numbers vote in Oman Shura polls

Click here: Gulf News – Record numbers vote in Shura polls

Urban voters, especially women, turned up in large numbers to  elect representatives for sixth term of the 84-seat Majlis Al Shura. This time, the 12-hour voting started at 7am to decide fate of 631 candidates (one died before elections) and within an hour all the three polling stations in the capital – Baushar, Muttrah and Muscat – were virtually swarming with voters. Women formed serpentine queues that extended outside the respective school premises where polling was being held.
