Candidates will begin their electoral campaigns in line with the established rules and regulations. The campaigning will draw to a close 24 hours before the start of the polling process.
Candidates will be able to hold seminars and electoral programs at several gymnasiums and youth centers in Qatar, allocated by the Ministry of Interior in conjunction with the Ministry of Culture and Sports.
Candidates can also hold a seminar in a hotel at their personal expense provided that they inform the Supervisory Committee.
