Adéu a Nihil Obstat | Hola a The Catalan Analyst

Després de 13 anys d'escriure en aquest bloc pràcticament sense interrumpció, avui el dono per clausurat. Això no vol dir que m'hagi jubilat de la xarxa, sinó que he passat el relleu a un altra bloc que segueix la mateixa línia del Nihil Obstat. Es tracta del bloc The Catalan Analyst i del compte de Twitter del mateix nom: @CatalanAnalyst Us recomano que els seguiu.

Moltes gràcies a tots per haver-me seguit amb tanta fidelitat durant tots aquests anys.

El parlament de Kuwait s'obre per primera vegada a les dones

La candidata Aisha al-Rshaid Five women have become candidates in Kuwaiti parliamentary elections for the first time in the Gulf state's history. One of them, woman's rights activist Rula Dashti, said it was a historic day that marked the beginning of women's involvement in Kuwaiti public life.

The Kuwaiti parliament voted last May to allow women to vote and run for office, ending a 44-year ban. The 29 June poll was called on Sunday amid a political crisis over reform. "It's a dream come true and the actual beginning of Kuwaiti women's participation in public life," Ms Dashti told AFP news agency after filing her papers.

The dissolution was ordered by the ruler, Sheikh Sabah al-Sabah, after a dispute broke out between government and MPs over electoral reform.
