Categories: Middle East & North Africa, Bahrain, Governance, Politics, Protest

Bahraini blogger Mahmood Al Yousif keeps us up-to-date [1] with the latest fiasco in the Bahraini Parliament. Eighteen MPs walked out from a session yesterday in protest. “What apparently happened this morning according to an informed source is that the Asala bloc said that the Wefaq demand for interrogation was unconstitutional as it is construed as interfering in the judicial powers. The 17+1 Wefaq members withdrew in protest and to discuss the matter further,” he explains.
