Riyadh, e-Media

Shura Council failed to take a decision on the demographic policy. 66 member voted against fertility control while 57 members voted in favor of fertility control. According to the Council's rules any resolution needs 76 votes to pass. The Council voted  three  times but failed to secure majority of votes for either of the two recommendations. The matter will be referred to the King for final resolution.
