The results of the Bahraini parliamentary and municipal elections were a frustration to more than 25 former Bahraini deputies who re-nominated themselves. Only six of them won. The elections were frustrating also to the women. Out of 16 women candidates, only one woman won by acclaim while the other women lost. None of these women were qualified for the rerun. Meanwhile, thIslamic national Accord [Wifaq] Society won 15 seats out of a total of 26 seats. This was confirmed by the final results of the first round elections.
