Qatar

The first general elections for the Consultative Assembly were planned in Qatar for the second half of 2013,[1] but were "in effect indefinitely postponed" in June 2013 after the retiring Emir extended the Consultative Assembly's term, prior to transferring power to his son.[2]

Electoral system[edit]

Men and women aged over 18 are eligible to vote for 30 of the 45 seats in the Consultative Assembly according to the 2003 Constitution of Qatar.[3][4]
