BH Parliament


The parliament in Bahrain has only few powers and never convened between 1975 and 2002. In 2002, it was converted into a bicameral parliament consisting of the "Madschlis asch-Schura", an upper house with forty members, and the new lower house "Madschlis an-Nuwwab", also with forty members. The lower house voted against a royal decree for the first time in 2012. Construction is currently under way on a new building complex on a 100,000m2 plot on an artificial island.
