Apathy

Incredible.

This country just went through an election and except for Um Qusai the day before the election, and Sleepless in Muscat the day after, no other Omani blogs that I know of wrote anything about it until today.

If this ain't apathy, then I don't know what is.

Update 31/10/07:

My views on the election are on my blog. [link]

Out of all the Omani people I know, very few were really interested in the Shura Council elections & a fewer number participated by voting. Also if you check English Sabla forum, you will find very few of the members were really interested in the elections and most of them didn't vote even though they are above 21 years old.

I was also a bit disappointment that nobody from the Omani bloggers has written anything about the elections here on OCB, I actually expected to have someone give his/her thoughts about those elections, even if they don't believe in them!

Well, i can't write about this election, for simple reason that am not in the country to vote for any one.

Although two members of my famoly did put themselves forward, again the rule roles as "me no there, me no vote" simple. :)

However, i was expecting this topic to be covered in here too!

Did the Embassies call to invite to vote the residents abroad or not ?
