New project on way to empower Bahraini women.

A PROGRAMME aimed at promoting Bahraini women's political development will be launched in September.

Bahrain Political Development Institute (BPDI) will spearhead the scheme in co-operation with the Supreme Council for Women (SCW), in line with the National Dialogue recommendations and the National Women's Development Strategy.

The programme, which will run until December 2014, focuses on promoting Bahraini women's political development and awareness.

Priority

His Majesty's political adviser for media affairs and BPDI board of trustees' chairman Nabeel Al Hamer stressed the importance of the programme in encouraging women to vote and run in elections, promote their political awareness and anchor civil society values.

SCW secretary-general Hala Al Ansari described women's political development as a top priority for the council.
