Industrial Relations: MPs in Bahrain sneak out of boring discussions

Fourteen MPs considered that discussions about the new Labour Market Regulatory Authority (LMRA), were so boring that they sneaked out of a parliamentary session yesterday.

At the start of discussions 25 MPs were present but only 11 returned from a 30 minute prayer break. They had earlier complained to first vice-chairman Dr Abdulhadi Marhoon, that unless they got a break, they would fall asleep.
