Bahrain’s future is now bright, His Majesty King Hamad said yesterday, urging everyone to promote national unity.
“What has passed by is like a summer cloud … and it has passed us by thanks to everyone’s solidarity and interdependence,” he said as he received, in the presence of His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Crown Prince and Deputy Supreme Commander, a Bahrain Bar Society delegation, led by its chairman Jamila Ali Salman at Al Safriya Palace.
The country has always managed to overcome crises and emerge stronger, he pointed out.
“We have together accomplished much progress in development and democracy that we can be proud of,” His Majesty said.
He cited the national charter, constitution, parliament, free and fair polls, freedom of Press, financial audit board and independent judiciary as some examples.
He praised lawyers for their service to nation and promoting rights.
Ms Salman pledged full support to measures adopted by the kingdom to restore security and stability, based on constitutional legitimacy. Agencies
