Qatar to hold first national elections in October 2021: Emir

Qatar's Emir said the Gulf State will hold an unprecedented election for its advisory Shura council in October 2021 after years of delays.

The proposed vote will be for two-thirds or 30 of the 45 members of the Shura council. The Emir would appoint the remaining 15 members.

"This is an important step towards strengthening Qatari advisory traditions and developing the legislative process with wider citizen participation," Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani said, addressing the opening of the Shura Council.
