Legislative power is held by the Sultan, who is Head of State and holds executive power as Prime Minister with the aid of a Council of Ministers, there is no legislature as such.

The Council of Oman functions as an advisory body and is included into the 82 member Majlis as Shura (Consultative Council) and the 41 member Majlis al Dawlah (Council of State).

Members of both are selected by the Sultan. In the case of the Majlis as-Shura, the choice is made from 700 odd candidates elected from each vilayat (district).
