Don’t Call Shoura a Parliament

Abdulrahman al-Rashed says as long as the Shoura Council are appointed and not elected then it is not a parliament. He calls for partial election of Shoura:

I believe that the Shoura Council being a mixture of recruited members with extraordinary talent and elected representatives of different social groups raises accountability for the growing state, which is justified because the state has more responsibilities and thus the expectations of citizens have grown.
