A hashtag entitled “No to the signature of tribal elders” issued the list of the most popular Twitter hashtags in the Sultanate of Oman, as part of a campaign launched by Omani citizens calling for the abolition of the requirement for tribal and regional elders to sign government transactions and official documents for approval.
“No to the signing of the tribal elders” tops the list in the Sultanate of Oman
and cross markNo to the signature of tribal elders.” Many activists described this as bureaucratic transactions that require the signature of sheikhs in the regions, noting that the Sultanate, although it has become a state of institutions and law, “and we still need the signature of sheikhs to finalize our transactions.”
🔴 Citizens demand to get rid of the bureaucracy of transactions that require the signature of elders in the regions, the state of institutions and the law, and we still need the signature of elders to finish our transactions! #No_to_signature_of_the_sheikhs_of Kabylie

The victory of Amer considered that the signature of the governor and the sheikh of the tribe is nothing but an obstruction and difficulty in dealings, and a lot of humiliation and contempt for the citizen, as she described it.

opposition to marking
While Hamad Hilal Al-Hajri opposed the label and rejected what was stated in it, saying: “We, as Arabs, have tribes to which we belong, and this tribe has customs, origins and symbols that cannot be changed, and our sheikhs are symbols that we are proud of and support.”
We, as Arabs, have tribes to which we belong, and this tribe has customs, origins, and symbols that cannot be changed, and our sheikhs are symbols that we are proud of and support them, and we must preserve and unite and not allow such talk that is always raised in the communication sites. Keep the symbols of your tribes and references to stand with them ✋

He continued, “We must preserve and unite and not allow such talk that is always raised in the communication sites. Preserve the symbols of your tribes and your references to stand with them.”

Abdullah Musa al-Hakli supported him: “A strange name and I personally reject it, the sheikhs are the pillars of the Arab tribes, and there are no tribes without sheikhs. The sheikhs have many important social roles, and one of the reasons for the social and political stability in the country.”

A legitimate demand that does not violate the customs and traditions of the Sultanate
Some considered that these traditions are no longer commensurate with the era of speed and technological development, in the completion of government work, and that working to facilitate services for citizens does not contradict the customs and traditions of the Sultanate, according to their description.
I totally agree with the requirement
You want to finish a transaction that says you must sign the Sheikh,, and I swear that the Sheikh does not know me, does not know my situation, and does not know where I work!! I mean, he signs what exactly??
I honestly hope that the laws pertaining to the Ministry of Interior are updated to keep pace with the civil state we aspire to

Letter to the Ministry of the Interior @moigovom
50 years after the Renaissance, do we still need both
As long as there is a governor, the rest of the positions are supposed to be abolished
Comfortable positions for a young man on his deathbed who can’t even hold a pen and doesn’t know how to write a letter 😒

One of the participants in the tag wrote: “The sheikhdom is a social affair, but a government transaction, what does the sheikhdom have to do with it? And the data are recorded in the government system, O Prime Time Zone, we created you from a male and a female and made you peoples and tribes so that you may know one another. Indeed, the most honorable of you in the sight of God is the most pious of you.
Presbyterian is a social affair
But the government’s treatment of the income of the sheikhdom in it?
The data is registered in the government system

An activist denounced the process of forcing the signature of the tribal sheikh to approve the official papers: “I want to know now the birth certificate, the identity card, the passport and the signature of the guardian, or the husband’s contract form. Where do you live”.
need to say #No_to_the_signatures_of_the_sheikhs_of_tribes
I want to know now the birth certificate,
And an ID card, and a passport
and the guardian’s signature, or the spouse’s contract form,
These are all enough to clear important transactions
Without the signature of the Sheikh 🙄 who doesn’t even know me, my family, or where I live..⁉️#No_to_signature_of_the_sheikhs_of Kabylie
