GUEST,Wolfgang Election in Iraq (161* d) RE: Election in Iraq 09 Feb 05


Speaking about elections in Iraq. One of the neighbouring countries, Saudi Arabia, will have local elections soon:
50 % of the seats are taken by candidates preselected by the SA Royals. Women can't vote. No, not what you think, there are purely administrative reasons for that: (1) Most SA women do not have identitiy cards with photos (2) there are not enough female helpers to man (sorry, woman) all the separate voting stations necessary for the female voters. But in 2009, maybe.

How an SA-spokesman can announce this reasoning and keep a straight face expecting the listeners to believe him is hard to understand. he might have learned from Comical Ali.
