Newsmakers of the Year
In the Yahoo! Maktoob News 2011 Newsmakers Poll we want you to vote for the personalities of the year.
We’ve compiled a shortlist made up of some names you the readers have selected. Others on the list have been chosen based on the amount of news coverage they received and interest shown in stories about them.
The shortlist is made of 10 people they include Apple’s co-founder Steve Jobs; Indian social activist and hunger striker, Anna Hazare; and the leader of Libya’s NTC Mustafa Abdel Jalil.
Remember this is a poll where you decide who had the most impact on the world, that’s why we’ve included people like Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
And then there are those who you might think are just good role models such as Indian actor Aishwarya Rai.
There are no right or wrong answers in this poll – you can vote for whichever of these people you want. The choice is yours.
It’s a social poll so you can share it with your friends by adding it to your pages on Facebook.
All you have to do is click through to the voting page – there you will see a slideshow of 10 images with a brief explanation about each individual newsmaker. Voting is simple, under the slideshow is the poll, click on the image of the person you want and cast your vote.
The poll will run until January 7, 2012, so getting voting and enjoy.
