Did someone say "petition"?

Monday, June 07, 2004
Today's GDN has a tiny paragraph about the political parties issue. It says:
A proposed political parties law was refused by MPs yesterday, who decided to submit another proposal calling for enhancements to the existing political societies role. The proposal, submitted by the parliament's legislative and legal affairs committee, will be studied by the Cabinet which will later take a decision over it.
As you can see, Bahrain's English language press have very poor coverage of domestic politics. Is there anyone else out there who might be able to give us a little bit more information about who said what and why?

Not content with blocking legislation to outlaw discrimination, Asalah’s latest is to stunt the country’s democratisation with this move against political parties. Officially they’re blocking the legislation as one of them told Iranian TV, because the word Hizb has connotations of the “dark side” in the Koran; and equally whacky coming from Asalah, they claim “political parties encourage sectarianism”.

But the real reason is to maintain their networks of mosques and clerics as the most effective political organisations.
