Bahrain Parliametary elections

Text size Aa Aa

Elections have taken place in Bahrain to decide who will replace a group of 18 opposition MPs who resigned in protest at the slow pace of reforms.

Demonstrators attempted to re-ignite their rebellion ahead of the vote, and clashed with police who closed roads to a key protest site in the capital Manama.

Opposition leaders called for a boycott of the ballot by those seeking full democracy and an end to the dominance of the ruling monarchy.
