Saturday is business as usual..

The government has announced that it would be business as usual for anyone who works in the public sector since that would be the day that the 6th Shura Council elections. The government source also stated that anyone who takes a leave for attending the voting cast will not be penalized in their month-end salary.

It is worth mentioning that there would be around 388,000 candidates who are eligible for selection as a successful Shura Council member on which the election period would be on October 27, 2007 from 7am to 7pm at the appropriate voting casts designated for each Wilaya.

There has been, though, no news about how the private sector would deal with any Omani employee who does not attend work on that day as that day closes nearer.
