The Shura Council has extended its warmest congratulations to His Majesty the King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the Crown Prince and Prime Minister, and all Bahrainis on the 20th anniversary of the National Action Charter.
In a statement on the occasion, the Shura hailed the people of Bahrain who have invariably demonstrated their loyalty and patriotism on all situations and occasions.
The Shura stressed that it recalls with great pride the noble values and the firm foundations established by the Charter and that have become the unifying base for the achievements and development in Bahrain over two decades marked by great endeavors and endless dedication to the Kingdom and its prosperity.
The Shura said the Charter, initiated by HM the King, was a national stage for the meeting of the wills of the people and the government that empowered politics in Bahrain to move forward towards broader horizons.
The convergence of the wills has become a distinguished model in the application of the highest meanings of democracy and the activation of the state of law and institutions.
As Bahrain celebrates two glorious decades of the endorsement of the Charter, it charts a new chapter of solidarity and national unity, rallying around the leadership of HM the King and contributing to the combat against the Coronavirus pandemic through the national campaign led with wisdom and aptness by His Royal Highness the Crown Prince and Prime Minister.
The Shura reiterated its deep pride in the special royal care accorded to the parliament since its launch in 2002, stressing that HM the King chartered the legislative achievements and empowered the parliament to play its role and rise to its constitutional responsibilities in enacting legislation and laws.
