NUA slams misleading report.

MANAMA: The National Unity Assembly (NUA) has hit out at misleading information published in the Washington Post.

It clarified that, what was mentioned was contrary to what its president Dr Shaikh Abdulatif Al Mahmood said.

Dr Al Mahmood had told the paper that Bahrain's constitution has given His Majesty King Hamad the right to appoint the prime minister with no obligation on him being from the Ruling Family or otherwise.

Moreover, Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa has extensive experience in managing the state and has great abilities in administrating governmental work, he said. "In addition to that peoples' trust in him has increased during this crisis."

Dr Al Mahmood also called on people from different sects and religions to join NUA, adds a report in our sister paper Akhbar Al Khaleej. "Doors are open for Sunnis, Shi'ites, Bohras, Christians and Jews to join the NUA," Dr Al Mahmood said.

"The enemies of the state have shifted their battle from inside to outside, following their defeat.

"They do not wish to contest elections as they have now realised that the popular support base they had built over the years has been shaken and people are no longer supporting them."

Dr Al Mahmood said a broader coalition will emerge after reports that Al Menbar and Al Asala societies met to discuss the by-election.
