Elections or appointments?

Prince Nayif bin `Abdul-`Aziz (who has just been awarded a doctorate in political science by Lebanese prime minister, Fu'ad Sanyurah) said that appointments of members of the Shura Council is better than their election. More explained: ""Appointing the members always ensures that the best are selected," Interior Minister Prince Nayef said in comments carried by al-Jazirah daily. "If it was to happen through elections, the members would not have had been this competent." Asked if that could include women, he said: "I don't see the need for that.""
