King Hamad accepts government’s resignation

October 31, 2010

Last meeting of the 2006 - 2010 government - BNA Bahrain’s government on Sunday submitted its resignation to King Hamad Bin Eisa Al Khalifa, a day after the end of the quadrennial parliamentary and municipal elections.

The resignation was accepted by the King who requested Prince Khalifa Bin Salman Al Khalifa, the prime minister, to assume the interim day-to-day ministerial responsibilities until the new government is formed.

The decision to hand in the resignation is based on Article 33 of the constitution that stipulates that the government should resign at the beginning of a new legislative term, Prince Khalifa said at the weekly cabinet meeting.

Paying tribute to his ministers, Prince Khalifa said he appreciated their contributions to the success of the government in the last four years.

Bahrain is now rife with speculations about the names of the ministers who will leave or join the government.

“Aptitude, competence, productivity and allegiance to the nation are the criteria for any government position,” Prince Khalifa said earlier on Sunday as he received senior officials.
