    Background: The Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Khalifa Bin Hamad al-Thani, inaugurated the first meeting of the country's advisory council on Monday (May 2), calling on its members to do their utmost to serve their country.

    The meeting followed last weeks decree appointing 20 members to the council, as laid down in the Qatari provisional Constitution of 1970.

    Nons of the Council members belong to the ruling Al-Thani family. Most of them -- like the Speaker and his deputy -- are leading Qatari businessmen or members of the Municipal Council in Doha, the capital.
