Saudi Arabia's Political System
Saudi Arabia is an absolute monarchy. That’s an autocracy. But it is not good or wrong. The Middle East and Muslim nations have many autocracies. Examples are Egypt, Libya, Syria, and so on.
Moreover, they adopt democratic elections. It is considered that they choose their system. So we don’t say simply that an autocracy is wrong.
