Qatar is all set to hold its first Shura Council elections in October 2021. An electoral law for the country’s first legislative polls was passed by His Highness The Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, so there is more participation of Qatari citizens.
The Shura Council has legislative powers, is responsible for determining the general budget, and it also checks the executive powers. The Council is responsible for deliberating and making suggestions on a number of issues.
Based on the electorate, 30 members will be voted in out of the 45 members of the Shura Council, while the remaining 15 will be appointed by H.H. The Amir. All the members of the Shura Council, whether voted in or appointed, will have the same rights and responsibilities.
In accordance with the provisions of Law No. (6) of 2021 promulgating the Shura Council Election System Law, and Decree No. (37) of 2021 defining electoral districts and the areas of each of them, the registration of voters will be opened in all electoral districts, starting from Sunday, 1 August 2021 and will continue until Thursday, 5 August 2021 from 4 pm - 8 pm every day. The preliminary lists of voters will be announced on Sunday, 8 August 2021. (MOI)
The Qatari voter should initiate the registration application procedure himself/herself through the Metrash2 application, by text message, or by personally visiting one of the electoral headquarters, with the complete data required for registration.
