Bahrain’s Attorney General Dr. Ali Al Buainain announced on Wednesday establishing a committee consisting of a Public Prosecution panel to conduct probes into election processes and suspected crimes. Composed of nine members, the committee will expedite procedures for revealing crimes and violations committed during elections. “The committee is functional with immediate effect and will operate until the electoral process is completed with the election of the MPs and councilors,” he said in a statement.
“The importance of establishing this committee is in the decision-making with regards to electoral crimes that affect public civil rights, the legal system governing elections, and other associated crimes.”
The terms for selecting volunteers were posted on the elections portal on Instagram, the electronic site. Bahraini youth have started submitting their applications to volunteer in upcoming parliamentary and municipal polls.
In a related context, submitting registrations of voter lists concluded on Wednesday. For the first time in Bahrain, e-registration is being adopted.
