Saudi Females to get right to vote and run without the permission of Male in 2015 elections

Saudi Females to get right to vote and run without the permission of Male in 2015 elections



Saudi Arabia is a male dominated nation where females enjoy very few basic rights.

The country is guided by an ultraconservative interpretation of Islam called Wahhabism.

Now media has reported that Saudi Females will be allowed to vote and contest elections in year 2015 without the male guardian permission.

The country's Shura Council is an all-male consultative body with no legislative powers.

State-run al-Watan newspaper reported that Shura Council member Fahad al-Anzi said that
Approval for women to run and vote came from the guardian of Islam's holiest sites, the Saudi king, and therefore women will not need a male guardian's approval.
