Women in Saudi Arabia to vote for first time
Saturday, 12 December 2015 - 19:49
Saudi Arabia will go to the polls today in unprecedented municipal elections in which women will cast a ballot for the first time.
Women are able to stand as candidates, despite the fiercely conservative kingdom being the only nation where women are not allowed to drive.
A total of 978 women have registered as candidates, alongside 5,938 men.
Female candidates have had to speak behind a partition during campaign appearances or be represented by a man.
