Published

Registration closed last night with 85 candidates having submitted papers for the parliamentary by-elections due to take place on 24th September.

Nine women have registered for the by-elections which have come about because of the resignation of 18 Al Wefaq MPs in February; the MPs resigned over the violence being used against protesters. Al Wefaq and a number of other organisations are boycotting the election.
