al-Wefaq Caves

Al-Wefaq is now calling for a postponement in Bahrain's sponsorship law revision:
"Al Wefaq, Bahrain's largest political society and parliamentary bloc, on Monday became the latest formation to ask Majeed Al Alawi to postpone the implementation of the decision from August 1 to next year...

"Al Wefaq's new position is a reverse of its earlier stance when it said that it supported the decision to scrap the sponsorship system as a way of helping reform the labour market in the private sector where foreigners make up around 81 per cent of the total workforce."
