Power of Majlis A’Shura extended by HM
By staff - Thu Oct 20, 9:38 am
Royal decrees published Thursday widen the powers of an 84-seat council that previously had only an advisory role. The members of the Shura Council can now take part in proposing laws to Oman’s ruler and can also suggest changes in government regulations.
The sultan also met Wednesday with visiting U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
