Bahrain launches weekly media briefing of cabinet sessions

April 9, 2013

Bahrain on Sunday launched the official weekly cabinet press conference in which the spokesperson for the government informed the media about the session.

The tradition had been that a press statement would be issued, attributed to a senior official carried by the official Bahrain News Agency (BNA) after the session ended.

However, Sameera Bin Rajab, the state minister for information affairs and the spokesperson for the government, on Sunday started a new format and held a conference at the Gudhaibiya Palace where the cabinet holds its regular meetings every Sunday and read out the statement.

Sameera, a former columnist with a local daily, and a book author, was appointed state minister in April last year and was given the additional position of spokesperson for the government in November.
