this is just a complete and utter sham. first of all this "municipal elections" mean absolutely nothing. the candidates must be approved by a Royal fatwa, and these candidates bear absolutely no executive power at all. women still can't drive, they have to dress like they in the Star Wars and have no political rights. women can vote now? at least that's a step, they're only 1000 years behind now.
