A campaign has been launched last week in a workshop on e-Voting at InterContinental Hotel in Bahrein which was attended by 50 representatives of various political societies and non-governmental organisations.

The workshop was held as follow-up to the Bahrain e-Voting Forum, organised earlier this year by the Bahrain Information Technology Society (BITS), in co-operation with the United Nations Information and Communication Technology for Development in the Arab Region division and the Bahrain Election and Referendum Directorate. It was addressed by Central Informatics Organisation (CIO) IT director general Mohammed Al Qaed and two consultants on the e-Voting project and it targetted to teach people about the e-Voting system to be used in the forthcoming municipal and parliament elections. The forum was held under the patronage of Minister of State for Cabinet Affairs and CIO president Shaikh Ahmed bin Ateyatalla Al Khalifa.
