Bahrain: Parliamentary candidates who “cheat” their way to victory through buying votes could face up to three years in jail and BD3,000 fines under amendments approved by the Shura Council. The same penalty would apply to government officials, civil servants, clergymen and municipal councillors who misused their posts to promote themselves or other election candidates.
