As soon as the National Assembly (parliament) was dissolved by an Amiri Decree earlier in October, the Ministry of Information turned into a hive of activity, setting all its sectors and capacities in full swing to work around the clock, preparing for covering the new elections set for November 26.
Just days ahead of the elections, the ministry is proceeding with the final touches at the communication center and Studio 800, in addition to the media center at the Sheraton Hotel, to provide a live minute-to-minute coverage of the elections day.
Media at home and overseas will benefit a lot. The communication center, Studio 800 and the media center have been provided with state of the art technology, and the human efficiencies to help guests and media figures coming from different world countries to cover the event.
This will, no doubt, help offer a full image of the whole process since the voting starts in the early morning, till the polling stations are closed, then the sorting out of votes and the announcement of initial, and later, the final results in the country’s five constituencies.
