Manama, Feb. 2. (BNA) – His Royal Highness Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa said that the Council of Representatives is an all-inclusive venue where all national issues are discussed, affirming that MPs represent the people who elected them, and, therefore, the government is all ears to what they raise, as the government and parliament both share the concerns of the citizens.

He pointed out that the government always embraces the remarks and visions of the “representatives of the people” that contribute to achieving national interests because they are meant for “construction, not destruction”, calling for the need to adhere to national unity in order to drive away risks and build on landmark national achievements so as to optimise them.

HRH Premier voiced the stances as he received here today the President of the Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs Shaikh Abdulla bin Khalid Al Khalifa, the Chairman of the Shura Council Ali bin Saleh Al Saleh and MPs, in the presence of a number of senior officials.

HRH Premier said that “the government is interested in boosting traditional markets out of its keenness on supporting their merchants, on the one hand, and securing and preserving the citizens’ livelihoods, on the other,” noting that the relevant sides have already been instructed to determine the needs of souks in order to develop them so as to meet the expectations of shoppers and merchants.

On the latest regional and global developments, HRH Premier stressed that Arab action should be “more organised” in order to be more effective at international gatherings, calling upon Arab and Muslim nations to be more vigilant and cautious and broaden cooperation among them in order to be able to overcome the challenges facing them and achieve more complementarity.
