Where else in the Arab world can an Arab even vote?

This is one of the most ignorant questions I have seen in a long time.

For some reason, I spent a good portion of my "free time" today actually digging up the answer to this. I created a glorious spreadsheet detailing (among other things) government type, number of parliamentary members & their term lengths, birth rate, life expectancy, infant mortality and some other juicy tidbits of QOL indicators.

The fact of the matter is, in MOST of the "Arab world", there are elections. Granted, there are a few countries where those votes may or may not matter, depending on the whims of the PTB.

But that wasn't the question, was it?

If anyone's truly interested in the spreadsheet I created, email me.
