Manama: The Cabinet yesterday lauded the fruitful outcomes of the visit of Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi to Bahrain.
The session hailed solid Bahraini-Egyptian relations, and stressed the importance of President Al Sisi’s visit in bolstering ties.
Ministers praised Egypt’s supportive stances towards Bahrain and Arab issues, and the country’s influential role at the Arab and Islamic levels.
The Cabinet session was chaired by His Royal Highness Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa.
The Premier welcomed Bahrain’s achievements at various sports gatherings, especially its recent success in the 18th Asian Games where the country bagged 26 medals.
The Prime Minister commended the role played by His Majesty’s representative for charity work and youth affairs, Supreme Council for Youth and Sport chairman and Bahrain Olympic Committee president Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa, in supporting the youth and sports sector.
He also lauded the dedication and outstanding performance of Bahraini athletes.
The Cabinet discussed a draft law on amending an Article on the Commercial Register (CR). The bill aims to ensure that transactions of companies owned by the same partners shall not be affected while submitting applications for the CR – whether for renewal, cancellation or marking violations – and that only the transactions of the company and its branches would be affected.
The session approved the bill, as recommended by the Ministerial Committee for Legal Affairs.
The session approved a draft-law, based on a proposal presented by the Shura Council, on amending article 43 of the Property Lease Law.
Under the amendment, decisions of the Lease Dispute Committee may be challenged at the High Civil Court.
