Council of Oman
The Basic Statute therefore establishes the Council of Oman (Majlis Oman). This is made up of two chambers: Majlis A’Shura which is directly elected and Majlis A’Dawla which is appointed.
The Basic Statute also makes the free market the basis of Oman’s economic system and formally establishes basic human rights as part of the constitution.
These rights include free speech, freedom of assembly, and equality before the law, as well as the right to private property and personal privacy, freedom of religion and gender equality.
The Basic Statute also establishes the independence of the judiciary and is the ultimate point of reference for judicial authority.
