Omani Elections

Gulf News has an article about the buzz surrounding next week's elections for the consultative council in Oman. A lot of the article dwelt on how the elections are generating excitement in the rural areas. My impression of a lot of Gulf nations is that politics tends to focus on the capital, with everything else as a sort of hinterland. If that is correct, the chance for people from remote regions of the country to have any sort of voice at all in Muscat is important. Another interesting note: Oman's elections will be fully electronic.
