This article is for the Islamic Diwan of Kurum Ash-Sharqia. For other similarly-named entities, see Islamic Diwan.

The Islamic Diwan of the Sultanate of Kurum Ash-Sharqia is the so called "advisory branch", next to the legislative, executive and judiciary branches of government. It is governed by chapter 6 of the constitution, which draws heavily from the constitution of New Batavia.

Before a law is passed by Al-Majlis Al-Watani, it needs the advice of the Islamic Diwan, although this advice is non-binding.


The Islamic Diwan has two categories of members:

  • ordinary members are appointed by Al-Majlis Al-Watani at the Grand Vizier's proposal, at least half of the ordinary members need to be Muslim by faith, they have full voting rights
  • co-opted members are co-opted for their knowledge or expertise by the ordinary members, they have no voting rights
