Sultan Qaboos, ruling family, tribes, political power, Oman

Oman does not have any organized political groups. The ruling family, the tribes, and the merchants form groups that wield political power. The influence of foreign advisers, many of them British, has recently diminished, as has the political power of the tribes. Because Sultan Qaboos has initiated the move toward wider citizen participation and providing generous benefits, there is little pressure for democratic reform.
