albawaba -

Bahrain’s main Shia opposition group, the al-Wefaq National Islamic Society, has condemned a newly passed law that bans figures of dissolved opposition parties and organizations from running in parliamentary elections.

On Monday, Bahraini King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifah signed off on “The Exercise of Political Rights,” an amended version of the kingdom’s election law, which prohibits “leaders and members of political associations dissolved for violating the kingdom’s constitution or its laws” from standing as a candidate.
