The platform also provides a complete introductory guide to the laws and legislation in Qatar, the Shura Council elections law, the electoral districts decree, how to exercise the electoral right, a guide to the conditions that must be met, the procedures for registration in the voters' lists, everything related to submitting objections and appeals, and the places, dates and procedures for submission.
The media platform comes in implementation of the directives of HE the Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Sheikh Khalid bin Khalifa bin Abdulaziz al-Thani to achieve the principles of justice, equality and equal opportunities by providing a fair opportunity in media coverage for each candidate, in the framework of Qatar Media Corporation's efforts in serving the community as a whole by providing all the information available to introduce candidates and their programmes to the citizens, affirming its commitment to social responsibility, providing an effective and practical contribution to the success of the Shura Council elections, and promoting popular participation.
