At the end of my previous post I mentioned that Al Wefaq will hold a protest rally in Sitra tomorrow (Friday), demanding constitutional reforms. So here's an update on the situation. Apparently, the Ministry of Interior today asked Al Wefaq to cancel the rally. When word of this got around, Wefaq supporters urged the party leadership to stick their plans and hold the protest tomorrow. The Al Wefaq leadership announced this evening that the rally will go ahead tomorrow as planned. And the latest bit of news is that the Minister of Islamic Affairs has called Al Wefaq head Ali Salman, Abdullah Al Ghuraifi and Shaikh Isa Qasim to talk about the dispute over the protest.
Well let's see what happens tomorrow. I really hope there's no trouble. And I really really hope that no one gets arrested... it's all getting a bit monotonous.
