Bahrain Shura backs curbs on expat driving

Manama, May 12, 2014

Bahrain’s Shura Council foreign affairs, defence and national security committee has come to an agreement with parliament concerning a proposal banning expatriates from getting driving licences unless their job requires it.

Parliament had approved a draft legislation - as part of a draft Traffic Law - which states that "resident expatriates living Bahrain of non-GCC nationality are not allowed to get a driving licence for a car or machine vehicle unless the nature of his/her job requires it".

The committee is also in agreement with a parliamentary proposal banning a woman wearing the niqab from uncovering her face unless she didn't mind it.

The article on expats' driving isn't unconstitutional, committee chairman Dr Shaikh Khalid bin Khalifa Al Khalifa told our sister paper Akhbar Al Khaleej. – TradeArabia News Service
