What’s more hip, Doha or Dubai?

Here are the facts:
Both of them are located on the Arabic side of the Persian Gulf, and they both are capitals of emirates…

It is what scholars call a “constitutional monarchy” – this means that the national leader cannot be challenged in elections, but that nevertheless he is no “absolute” ruler, as it is his duty to follow the constitution, which is above him. Dubai does not have a parliament itself, but it is of course a member of the United Arab Emirates, and this country does have some form of parliament, the Federal National Council, which every member state, including Dubai, sends representatives to. Half of them do get elected by the people – so we can say that Dubai clearly has democratic elements. Read the rest of this entry »
