After Tamim bin Hamad, the Emir of Qatar, promised to hold parliamentary elections the Qataris were waiting for June 30, 2019, to celebrate- the end of the term of the appointed Shura Council, instead they were surprised by the issuance of a decision by Tamim to extend the term of the Shura Council Appointed to two years, from July 1st, 2019 to March 30, 2021.
The decision means the` suffering of the Qataris in the shadow of a stagnant legislative life in their country will continue , always and forever run by a shura appointed by the Emir only, a council made of people that the majority of Qataris do not know and can not communicate with, a shura and a council that do not feel their problems and their suffering and do not communicate with them all.
At the opening of the 46th session of the Shura Council on 14 November 2017, Tamim announced that the government is currently preparing for parliamentary elections and will present to the Council in 2018 the necessary legislative tools to complete the elections.
A week later, Prime Minister Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa al-Thani said that “the government is about to complete amendments to some laws and prepare the law of the election of the Shura Council, and will be presented to the Shura Council in 2018.”
Since then the Tamim government did not present any lawson parliamentary elections to the Shura Council, which Qataris have been waiting for for years now.
When the municipal elections in Qatar came to an end on April 16, Qataris found the opportunity to punish Hamdeen and embarrass hm with his policies and false promises to hold parliamentary elections. Qataris boycotted the municipal elections as a punishment for al-Hamdeen lies.
As the Parliament drew to a close, many hoped that Tamim and his promise would be implemented on June 30, 2019, the date of the end of the term of the appointed Council, by virtue of a decision issued on 16 June 2016, in which he extended the term of the Shura Council for 3 Gregorian years, The first of July 2016 and ending on 30 June 2019.
Since 2004, al-Hamdeen (former Emir of Qatar Hamad bin Khalifa and then prime minister Hamad bin Jassim) and Tamim have always promised Qataris parliamentary elections in the country, but none of them has been implemented.
The dreams of the Qataris remain in an elected council, amid an ongoing silence from Al-Jazeera and Al-Hamdeen about the file of the parliamentary elections. Qatar and its AL-JAZEERA are busy stirring up sedition and supporting devastation and terrorism under the slogan of “democracy”.
