Bahrain opposition movement re-elects leader

Ali Salman (centre) arrives at Al-Wefaq's headquarters in Zinj, west of Manama, on November 20, 2014Bahrain’s main opposition movement Al-Wefaq on Saturday handed its leader a new four-year stint at the helm of the Shiite group, whose activities have been banned in the Sunni-ruled kingdom. Sheikh Ali Salman, 49, was re-elected at Al-Wefaq’s general congress on Friday night, in a meeting held to comply with a law on associations that led to the three-month ban. In July, the justice ministry sued Al-Wefaq demanding it rectify its “illegal status following the annulment of four general assemblies for lack of a quorum and the non-commitment to the public and transparency requirements for holding them”. The Manama administrative court slapped Al-Wefaq with the ban on October 28 and gave it three months to hold an assembly to elect its leaders.
